HC Deb 22 March 1917 vol 91 c2080W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the utterances made recently in the Russian Duma by M. Miliukov, M. Cheidze, and other leaders on the injustices suffered by Jews in Russia; and whether he will consult the Russian Government on the guarantees and reparations which will now be offered to Russian Jews so that these men may be encouraged to return voluntarily to their native land?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative; to the second in the negative. But I should add that His Majesty's Government have every reason to hope, from the published declarations of the present Russian Government on the subject, that the lot of Russian Jews will in the future be greatly ameliorated.
