HC Deb 27 June 1918 vol 107 cc1195-6
3. Major CHAPPLE

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has on behalf of the Allies approached President Wilson with the suggestion that he should inquire of those in Russia who, in his opinion, best represent public opinion there whether they would welcome American intervention viâ the East, with the aid of such of the forces of the Allies as were immediately available, in order to save Russia from German invasion, domination, and exploitation?


Discussions are constantly in progress between His Majesty's Government and the Government of the United States, as well as the other Allied Governments with the objects referred to in the last part of the hon. Member's question. His suggestion will be noted, but it will no doubt be understood that I am unable to make any definite statement at present.


Is there any way by which this subject can be discussed in order to impress on the Government the necessity for immediate action in this matter?


I should think the hon. and gallant Gentleman is as good a judge as I am of how best to discuss the subject.
