HC Deb 23 July 1931 vol 255 cc1691-2W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that arrests and banishments of Ingrians were resumed this month; that these include aged and infirm, women, and children; and, in view of the fact that the Treaty of Dor-pat was registered with the League of Nations and that negotiations between Finland and Soviet Russia have reached a deadlock, whether the matter will be investigated by the League of Nations?


My right hon. Friend has seen reports to this effect, but he has no official confirmation of their accuracy. As regards the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the statement which I made in reply to his question on this subject on 14th April.
