§ 2. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked whether German troops under General von der Goltz and Baron von Manteuffel have re-entered Riga; and what steps will be taken to compel these German forces to withdraw to their own country?
According to a report received from His Majesty's representative at Libau dated 24th May, Riga has been occupied by the Balts, who were supported on their flank by a German cavalry division. As regards the second part of the hon. and gallant Member's question, I understand that the matter has been under the consideration of the representatives of the Allied Powers in Paris with a view to the adoption of the necessary measures.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Are these Germans not acting on their own initiative, without any Allied encouragement at all?
An HON. MEMBER
Does the hon. Gentleman appreciate the fact that the hon. Member for Hull has at last realised the necessity of maintaining a British force?
