§ 47. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Prime Minister whether the 19 recently-elected President of the Republic of Finland, Professor Stahlberg, has declared himself as being opposed to interference with the internal affairs of Russia; whether he has been recognised by the Allies as President of Finland; and whether his election will bring about any change in British policy in the Eastern Baltic?
§ Sir H. GREENWOOD
No information has been received regarding the attitude of the President of the Republic of Finland, Professor Stahlberg, towards Russia. As regards the second part of the question, no specific steps have been taken to recognise the new President of Finland, as this is not considered necessary in view of the recognition of the independence of Finland by the Allies. The answer to the third part of the question is in the negative.
