HC Deb 14 April 1920 vol 127 c1649
4. Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

asked the Secretary of State for India whether rouble notes to the approximate value of £2,662,500 at the present rate of exchange have recently been deposited in the Government treasuries, and whether he has any information to the effect that a very large proportion of this sum represents funds paid in by propagandists of the Bolshevist régime in Russia; and, if the answer is in the affirmative, whether any action has been taken in the matter?


I have no official information as to the value of the rouble notes deposited at Government Treasuries in India under the terms of the recent Ordinance. The Government of India are taking active steps to counteract Bolshevik propaganda in India.
