HC Deb 03 December 1919 vol 122 c374
9. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what Royal Naval forces it is proposed to keep at Murmansk and the Baltic and Black Seas, respectively, during the winter?


No naval force will be kept at Murmansk during the winter. The strength of the force in the other areas mentioned, will be governed by circumstances, but in any case it is not likely to be large.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Is it proposed to keep naval forces in these seas during the winter?


I have already stated that our action in this matter will be governed by circumstances. If forces are kept there for precautionary purposes, I think the hon. Member will see I cannot add more to what I have said.
