HC Deb 05 May 1924 vol 173 c66W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if, in view of the sympathy of the Government for Georgia, he had made any representations on the position of the Georgians to the Soviet Republic; and, if so, with what result?


I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Caithness and Sutherland (Sir A. Sinclair) on the 18th February. The position of Georgia is essentially a question of the internal politics of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in regard to which His Majesty's Government have nolocus standi such as would justify them in making representations to the Soviet Union Government.
