HC Deb 18 July 1923 vol 166 cc2323-4W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many British subjects there are still resident in Vladivostok; whether he is aware that their position is dangerous and complicated owing to Bolshevist methods; and whether there is any British representative looking after their interests and well-being?


There is at present no British representative at Vladivostok. British subjects there were recently advised to leave, and I am not in a position to give the exact number who still remain, but there are probably between 70 and 80. I have no reason to believe that their situation is any more dangerous than that of British subjects in other parts of the Soviet Republic.
