58. Mr. PALMER
asked the Prime Minister whether, at the time when the Polish troops were hard pressed by the Bolshevik forces before Kieff, the British military attaché with the Poles visited the Lithuanian headquarters to induce the Lithuanians to withhold their attack; and, if so, on whose authority did the British military attaché make the visit and the request?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
An officer of the British Military Mission in Poland visited Kovno on 31st May, no doubt on the authority of the Chief of the Military Mission. During his visit he had the opportunity of meeting the Lithuanian Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs. The British Foreign Office representative was present at the meeting of which I have received no details.
