As was pointed out in a reply to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) on 22nd March, the Transcaucasian Republics have declined to accept a British representative. I am unable at present to state what effective steps may eventually be possible to safeguard British interests in the Caucasus.
Will the hon. Gentleman say that before the Russian Soviet Government is recognised we shall receive distinct understandings that all British property is to be returned?
