HC Deb 03 August 1916 vol 85 cc496-7
64. Sir A. MARKHAM

asked the Prime Minister whether, seeing that Sir Sven Hedin has justified and aided the Germans in their course of rapine and murder, he has taken any steps to deprive this man of the honours conferred on him by this country and, if not, will he do so; whether he has any information that Sir Rudolph Slatin is fighting in the Austrian Army; and does he therefore propose to deprive him of the numerous honours conferred on him by this country?


I have not been able to obtain any certain or recent information as to the present activities of the persons mentioned in this question, but I will look into the matter and consider my hon. Friend's suggestion.
