§ 1. Lieutenant-Colonel Sir SAMUEL HOARE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether German influence is still strong in Finland; and whether, on this account, a British Mission should immediately be sent to Finland?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY Of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
A few German agents are still understood to be in Finland, but His Majesty's Government have been informed that the Finnish Government are taking the necessary steps for their immediate removal.
It is not at present thought necessary to dispatch a British Mission to Finland, where Mr. Bell is representing His Majesty's Government in the capacity of Acting British Consul-General.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Does the hon. Gentleman realise that a British Mission to Finland would meet with strong opposition from people here who object owing to massacres?
