45. Lieut. Colonel ARCHER SHEE
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that mobilisation on an extensive scale has been planned in Russia to take place before the summer; that all men born between 1891 and 1898 and in 1902 and 1903 are to be called to the colours, making 10 new classes of conscripts; that all ex-officers of the Russian army have been notified to be ready for immediate mobilisation; that such action is a grave menace to the states bordering on Soviet Russia: and whether he will represent to them that such action conflicts with Resolution A, paragraph 6, proposed by him and accepted by the Allies at Cannes?
No information is available to the effect that mobilisation on an extensive scale has been planned in Russia to take place before the summer. As regards the last part of the question, any representations on the subject would appear to be a matter for the Conference at Genoa.
