HC Deb 28 November 1922 vol 159 c532W

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the impossibility if reaching a permanent settlement of the Near Eastern problem without the cooperation of the Russian Government, His Majesty's Government will reconsider the advisability of extending a formal invitation to that Government to attend the forthcoming Conference at Lausanne?


It was in consideration of Russia's interest in the matter that His Majesty's Government, in conjunction with the Governments of France and Italy, issued on the 27th October a formal invitation to the Russian Government to participate in the discussion at Lausanne regarding the Straits.
