HL Deb 19 February 1918 vol 29 cc75-6

My Lords, on the Motion for the adjournment, I should like to make a personal explanation. On January 17 I made certain statements to your Lordships about Mr. Laszlo, which were based on information that I regarded as authoritative and bona fide. Amongst those statements I said that Mr. Laszlo had been in communication with Count Luxburg. I now find that this statement is incorrect, and I beg to express regret that I made it. I think it is my bounden duty to do so, both with regard to Mr. Laszlo and your Lordships' House.
