§ 3. Mr. KING
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, by a recent secret treaty made by the Czarist Government between Russia and France, certain compensations after the War are to be made to Belgium at the expense of Holland; and whether he can allay neutral suspicion by an emphatic declaration that this country has not been informed of, and will in no event tolerate, such a proceeding?
§ Lord R. CECIL
So far as I know, there is no foundation whatever for the suggestion that any such treaty has been made, and I believe it to be an invention of the enemy. The second part of the question does not, therefore, arise.
