§ 21. Mr. OUTHWAITE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the French Government is urging the invasion of Siberia by the Japanese for the purpose of overthrowing the Government of the Soviets because of its repudiation of the national debt, the stock of which is largely held by French capitalists; and can he state whether the policy of the British Government is influenced by similar considerations?
§ 26. Mr. KING
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will state what negotiations, if any, have taken place between this country and President Wilson or/and any other allied Government respecting intervention in the affairs of Russia by any of the Allies with a view of defeating enemy penetration and domination; and whether it is intended to undertake any sort of intervention before a request is received for definite help from the present Russian Government?
§ Lord R. CECIL
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I am unable to make any further statement on the matter at present.
