HC Deb 28 June 1920 vol 131 c27
35. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Prime Minister if his attention has been drawn to statements that a body of General Wrangel's troops was landed on the shores of the Sea of Azov for the recent offensive; was shipping supplied to General Wrangel for this purpose; if not, what shipping General Wrangel has been able to use; whether General Wrangel is still in possession of merchant shipping; and whether it is being convoyed by His Majesty's ships?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the remainder of the question, His Majesty's Government have no definite information on the subject, except that no British shipping was used.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

As there were recently British Naval and Military Missions with General Wrangel, what is the use of those Missions if the Government are not kept informed on important matters like these?
