HC Deb 24 February 1919 vol 112 cc1355-6
29. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the labour unions and farmers' leagues in Canada are expressing vigorous opposition to the sending of Canadian troops to Russia to fight the revolution; and whether he will see that Admiral Koltchak is not given the support of Canadian troops in putting down his enemies?


As to the first part of the question, I have no direct information, but His Majesty's Government are in close touch with the Canadian Government on the subject.

As regards the final part of my hon. and gallant Friend's question, the whole matter of the utilisation of the Canadian troops at present in Siberia is under consideration, but it is not possible to make any statement at this stage.
