§ 3. Miss LAWRENCE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the document numbered (1) in Part 11 of Cmd. 2874 was signed; will he give the name of the person to whom it was sent; and can he give the remainder of the document?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
The telegram was signed "Karakhan." It was numbered 6248/538, was addressed to the Soviet Representative in Peking, without specifying his name, and began with the words: "Sent to Peking for Borodin and Grigori."
I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT if that is convenient to the hon. Lady the text of a final paragraph which was not included in the Command Paper.
Following is the text of final paragraph:in view of the necessity of relying on the sympathy of the workers in Hupeh and with a view to organising without any delay an administration in Central China, it is considered that now that Kiukiang and Nanchang could only be occupied with difficulty it would be as well not to protest against the transfer of the Government and of the Central Committee of the Kuomintang to Hankow.
§ 47. Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
asked the Prime Minister whether any of the documents found on the premises raided in Moorgate contained the names of British persons other than those mentioned by him in his statement on Tuesday last; and whether any organisations in this country were found to have been acting with the Soviet agents in subversive propaganda?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I have been asked to reply. Documents found on the premises contained the names of British persons, and confirmed the information already in my possession as to the connection between Moscow and organisations in this country engaged in subversive propaganda.
If the right hon. Gentleman needs more information, could he not get it from the factories in Berlin?
Is the Home Secretary aware that he and his Department appear to be in no need of applying to anybody?
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any Member of Parliament was found on the premises when they were raided?
§ Mr. TAYLOR
Is it considered to be a crime for a Member of Parliament to be found on premises which turn over £30,000,000 or £40,000,000 worth of business every year?
