§ 56. Sir A. KNOX
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the conspiracy for participation in which certain individuals have been lately sentenced at Meerut was controlled and fnanced by the Communist International, an organisation under the control of the Soviet Government, he will ask for an explanation from Moscow?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir John Simon)
My hon. and gallant Friend has, I think, overlooked the fact that the case to which he refers was concerned with events which took place prior to March, 1929—that is to say, at a time when the propaganda agreement with the Soviet Government had not been signed.
