HC Deb 21 April 1920 vol 128 c427W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether a political mission from Finland to the Allies has arrived in this country; and whether its purpose is to discuss a solution of the Aaland Islands question, or is it also concerned with Finland's general attitude towards Soviet Russia?


The Finnish Minister for Foreign Affairs, accompanied by the Chief of the Finnish General Staff, visited this country recently and spent a few days in London. He has now left for Paris and intends to proceed thence to Rome. The object of Dr. Holsti's visit was to discuss with the British, French and Italian Governments certain points connected with Finnish foreign policy, which naturally included the questions of the Aaland Islands and of Finland's relations with Soviet Russia.
