18. Mr. KING

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is in daily telegraphic communication with the British Ambassador in Petrograd, and whether he has information as to the political situation there?

55. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Prime Minister whether he has any information he can give the House regarding events that have taken place in Petrograd?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and as regards the second part I can at present furnish no other information than that which has appeared in the public Press.


Has the right hon. Gentleman seen the statement that the British Ambassador was leaving Petrograd?


No; our Ambassador remains at Petrograd. He is there at this moment.
