HC Deb 17 December 1919 vol 123 cc373-4
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 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.
