HC Deb 15 May 1918 vol 106 c334

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to a speech delivered on 1st May last by Councillor Wright, of the Seamen's and Firemen's Union, in which he stated that during the past seven months he had been in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, and had met some prominent German Labour leaders, including members of the Minority Socialist party; and can he state how a representative of this union has been able to meet these German Labour leaders?


I know nothing about the alleged speech or the alleged meeting with German Socialists. Councillor Wright was given a passport in connection with an international conference of seamen from Allied and neutral countries for the purpose of considering the murders committed on seamen by German submarines.
