§ 13. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any intimation has been received from the de facto Russian Government that our acting Minister, Mr. Lockhart, is persona grata or ingrata to that Government; whether it was because of his sympathy with the Russian Government and people that a new Commissioner has been sent out over his head; and whether the de facto Russian Government was consulted as to this change?
§ The MINISTER of BLOCKADE (Lord Robert Cecil)
The answer to all three parts of the question is in the negative.
