HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 cc908-9
50. Captain LOSEBY

asked the Prime Minister whether at any time during the War special facilities were given to any political party of holding conversations with the enemy, either with the object of offering inducements to that enemy to sign the Peace Treaty or for any other purpose?


The answer is in the negative.

Captain LOSEBY

Has the right hon. Gentleman's attention been called to the fact that certain persons of prominence in a certain political movement did actually hold conversations with the enemy in time of war, and will he consider the advisability of instituting criminal proceedings against them?


That is not as I understood the question on the Paper, which, I thought, was whether the Government had given any facilities. I do not know anything about the facts to which my hon. Friend refers.
