HC Deb 07 November 1921 vol 148 c82W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether M. Rothstein, referred to in the note of the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs as being the representative of the Soviet Government in Teheran actively employed in a Press campaign against Great Britain, is the same person as the Russo-German Jew employed by the War Office during the War as head of the section dealing with Slavonic information; and, if so, who was responsible for his appointment?


I have been asked to answer this question. The person referred to was employed, under the authority of the then Director of Special Intelligence, as a translator. He was not, however, the head of a section.
