HC Deb 20 November 1918 vol 110 cc3430-1
Colonel WEDGWOOD (by Private Notice)

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of attempts made by pan-German agents to drive the Austrian Germans into union with Germany?


I will reply on behalf of my right hon. Friend (Mr. Balfour). Yes, Sir, my attention has been drawn to the matter. Rumours seem to have been spread in Austria by German agents, alleging that Great Britain proposes to force the Austrian Germans into a Danubian Federation and to prevent them from joining Germany, should they wish to do so. These rumours have no foundation whatever.
