5. Lieut.-Colonel MALONE
asked the Secretary for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the proclamation issued by the Omsk political bloc on 1st August by fourteen organisations and political parties; and whether he can now see his way to recommend complete recognition of the Koltchak Government before it is too late?
The reply to the first part of the hon. and gallant Member's question is in the affirmative. As regards the last part, His Majesty's Government do not intend to take any action independent of the Allied and Associated Governments, with whom they are in close communication with regard to the situation in Siberia.
