HC Deb 09 July 1923 vol 166 cc925-6
63. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the trials for high treason at Munich of certain Germans who are accused of plotting with one of the Allied Powers for the raising of a revolution in Bavaria and the separation of Bavaria under a German monarch from the German Empire; whether he is aware that the evidence tends to show that the Allied Power in question undertook to supply money and arms for such a purpose, and did, in fact, pay over moneys; and whether His Majesty's Government has had or has any knowledge of these matters?


His Majesty's Government are aware that a trial has taken place of the character indicated in the question, but I am unable to say whether the precise charge against the accused persons is accurately defined by the hon. and gallant Member. As regards the second part of the question, I am aware that allegations of this nature have been made in the course of the trial, but His Majesty's Government have no information to enable them to judge of the reliability of such statements.
