HC Deb 04 December 1919 vol 122 cc620-1W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether M. Litvinoff has brought to Copenhagen one or more British soldiers who have been held prisoner by the Soviet Government; if so, whether these British soldiers are now liberated; and what is the reason of the unusual and exceptional treatment accorded to them?


The answer to the first and second parts of the question is in the affirmative, I am not at present aware of the reason which led the Bolshevik authorities to give these men preferential treatment.
