HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 cc854-5
58. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Prime Minister whether he is prepared to sanction the passing into Petrograd of a small yacht loaded only with medicines and disinfectants that are asked for by the Petrograd Corporation Society, and for which the society is prepared to pay?


I see no objection in principle to this proposal. But it will be necessary to submit it to the Supreme Council of the Allied and Associated Governments; and before action can be taken full particulars as to the proposed transaction would be required—such as the port from which the yacht would sail and the means of ensuring that the cargo is confined to medical stores.
