§ Commander O. LOCKER-LAMPSON
(by Private Notice) asked the Prime Minister whether the broadcast appeal issued in English last night from Moscow inciting British workers to revolution is a breach of the undertaking of the Soviet. Government, and what steps he intends to take?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
I have been asked to reply. My Department did not receive the full text of this wireless address until after one o'clock this afternoon. In the short time at my disposal 2196 for its examination, I have come to the conclusion that, while it does not constitute an incitement to revolution, as suggested in the hon. and gallant Member's question, it is nevertheless, in my opinion, a departure from the undertaking given by the Soviet Government in regard to propaganda. In these circumstances, I am instructing His Majesty's Ambassador at Moscow to address a protest to the Soviet Government.
§ Commander LOCKER - LAMPSON
Will the right hon. Gentleman listen in this evening and this week in order to hear the next Moscow propaganda?
