HC Deb 27 March 1919 vol 114 cc586-7
47. Lieutenant-Colonel HERBERT

asked the Prime Minister if it has been decided to raise the blockade on Hungary the day after Hungary has accepted a Bolshevik government in order to encourage Bolshevism, or because it is believed now that the past policy of starving Hungary has produced Bolshevism and is a mistake?


It has not been decided to raise the blockade of Hungary.

48. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Prune Minister whether the Allied Mission has been withdrawn from Hungary; and, if so, whether anyone now represents British or American interests in that country or whether we are at war with that country?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply. The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, and, as regards the last part, I would remind my hon. and gallant Friend that the Armistice with Austria-Hungary still continues.


Are we to understand that the Armistice has not been abrogated by the action of Austria-Hungary?


I do not think it has been altered.
