HC Deb 22 June 1922 vol 155 c1528W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government has received information of the temporary or permanent retirement of M. Lenin as chief of the Russian Soviet Government; and whether information of increased unrest in various parts of Russia has been received during the past weeks?


I understand that M. Lenin has been ordered by his doctors to take a complete rest for a period and that it is still uncertain whether he will be able to resume his official duties. As regards the last part of the question, no definite symptoms of increased unrest have been reported to His Majesty's Government from any part of Russia.
