HC Deb 31 July 1914 vol 65 cc1787-8

I beg to move "That this House do now adjourn."

We have just heard—not from St. Petersburg, but from Germany—that Russia has proclaimed a general mobilisation of her Army and Fleet, and that in consequence of this, martial law was to be proclaimed for Germany. We understand this to mean that mobilisation will follow in Germany if the Russian mobilisation is general and is proceeded with. In the circumstances, I should prefer not to answer any questions till Monday next.

Adjourned accordingly at Eight minutes after Five o'clock till Monday next, 3rd August, pursuant to the Order of the House of 17th July.
