HC Deb 07 August 1919 vol 119 c546
64. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the accession to power of a democratic Government in Hungary, His Majesty's Government will now recognise this Government and raise the blockade on Hungary; and, if not, when this House will be given an opportunity of discussing the Hungarian situation?


The information in the possession of the Foreign Office is not definite enough to permit us to say whether the now Hungarian Government has actually been recognised, though the Allies have entered into relations with it. In any case, the Peace Conference have decided that the blockade is to be raised, and the Board of Trade are taking the necessary steps at once. I have consulted the Leader of the House, who thinks a discussion in the House upon Hungary would be inopportune.
