§ 55. Colonel C. MALONE
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the formation of a small Commission representative of all parties to visit Russia and render a Report on the political and economic situation, to be laid before the House within, say, two months' time?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW (Leader of the House)
The Government do not think that the suggestion of my hon. Friend could be adopted with advantage.
§ Colonel ASHLEY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a widespread desire for more information than is given to the House at the present time?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I am sure there is, but as the Prime Minister pointed out, I 1106 do not think more information could possibly be given with advantage at the present time.
§ Mr. DEVLIN
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the desirability of giving less attention to Russia and more to Ireland?
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Is it not a fact that at the present time all the information we get from Russia is one-sided?
Would it not be of some advantage that hon. Members with Bolshevist leanings and inclinings should be given free tickets to Russia?
