HC Deb 06 March 1918 vol 103 cc1950-1

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any diplomatic request has been addressed by the Japanese Government to the People's Commissioners of Russia to return the arms which are said to be lying at Vladivostock; whether this request has been refused; and whether any united diplomatic representations will be made by the Allied Governments before the use of force is sanctioned?

The MINISTER Of BLOCKADE (Lord Robert Cecil)

I am not aware of any such request having been made.
