HC Deb 13 March 1918 vol 104 c294
10. Mr. KING

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has reliable information as to the arming of German or other enemy prisoners in Siberia; and whether a Prussian general has proceeded to Siberia for this purpose?


Numerous reports have been received regarding the arming of enemy prisoners in Siberia, and, although the numbers concerned, points of concentration, etc., are doubtful, it is probable that considerable bodies of German and Austrian prisoners are now armed. A report to the effect that a German general is proceding to Irkutsk lacks confirmation.
