§ 1. Lieut.-Colonel Sir SAMUEL HOARE
asked the Secretary of State for India whether he can make any statement as to the extent and success of Bolshevist intrigue in Afghanistan and India?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Montagu)
As regards Bolshevist relations with Afghanistan, I do 374 not think I can usefully add anything material to the information published in the newspapers, which my hon. and gallant Friend has no doubt seen. Bolshevik missions have been received in Kabul, but I can make no statement as to their success. I have no reason to think that the well-known desire of the Bolshevists to spread their doctrines in India has met with any success.
