HC Deb 17 July 1919 vol 118 cc572-3
9. Lieut.-Colonel MALONE

asked if anyone is carrying out the duties of representative of the Bolshevist Government in England in place of M. Litvinoff; and, if so, who?


The answer to the first part of the hon. and gallant Member's question is in the negative. The second part does not, therefore, arise.

Lieut.-Colonel MALONE

Is it not a fact that the Bolshevist Government has communicated with certain gentlemen in this country, and that some of these communications have reached the Foreign Office? Will the hon. Gentleman make inquiries whether that is a fact, and either disregard all these communications or recognise the Bolshevist Government, and not have this dilly dallying on one side or the other?


I do not know that there is any official communication. If the hon. Gentleman has any information perhaps he will supply particulars.


Will the hon. Gentleman take steps to arrest these Bolshevist agents?
