asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Sir George Clerk, as the representative of the Supreme Council, extended recognition to the Hungarian Government on certain terms; whether these terms included the holding of free elections; and whether, in view of the fact that the trade unionist minister Peyer resigned as a protest against the general state of terror, and that the Social Democrats abstained from voting at the elections because in their opinion guarantees for free elections were absent, he will state whether the conditions under which the Hungarian Government was recognised have been observed?
