asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government has any information controverting the reports of the activities of General Baron Wrangel in organising a force among the Russian emigrés and refugees in the Balkans and elsewhere, and especially upon Serbian soil; has he any information of the objects of such a force; and whether he can state the present whereabouts of Baron Wrangel?

I have no information regarding General Wrangel's activities in the Balkans or elsewhere. The second part of the question therefore does not arise. General Wrangel was reported to have arrived in Sofia on 27th February.

Has the hon. Gentleman seen a telegram in the newspapers stating that there were 20,000 troops organised?

Is this a question to be raised in this country?

When a question is addressed to the Foreign Office, why is no explanation given when the Under-Secretary does not reply?
