HC Deb 04 December 1922 vol 159 c1196
53. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Prime Minister whether the Allied invitation to the Russian Government to send representatives to Lausanne envisages their participation in a consultative capacity; and whether the Russian representatives will be invited to sign the protocols drawn up concerning the particular questions in which Russia is deemed to be interested?


Russian delegates have been invited to take part in the discussion about the Straits. The question of the form in which decisions are to be recorded, whether in protocols or otherwise, is for the Conference itself to settle.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

When the question of Asiatic boundaries comes up, will the discussion be open to the Russians, especially the Armenian question?


No: I believe the invitation to the Russians is limited to the question of the Straits.
