§ 4. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether M. Ullmani's National Government in Latvia has been recognised; and what support has been given to our Allies, the Letts, against Colonel Bermondt, General von Eberhardt, and other adventurers in the Baltic provinces?
His Majesty's Government on 11th November, 1918, 852 granted personal recognition to the Lettish National Council as a de facto Independent body. In answer to the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer to-day to the hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme.
§ 5. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked whether the Esthonian Government is still being left entirely free to conduct its negotiations with the Soviet Government of Moscow?
§ 7. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what pressure is now being brought to bear on the German Government to compel the withdrawal of troops under the command of General von Eberhardt or any other officer who may have succeeded General von der Goltz; do closer relations exist between the leaders of these troops and General Yudenitch; and has he considered the question of bringing pressure to bear upon General Yudenitch as well as upon the German Government?
In answer to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the second part of the answer to-day to the hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative, so far as His Majesty's Government are aware. The third part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
May I ask if the hon. Gentleman is aware of any secret communications that have passed directly between the Allied Council in Paris and the commanders of these Germane troops which have not been published in the Press?
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
That is to say no instructions have been given to General Yudenitch or the Germans to co-operate in any way against the Bolsheviks?
