On 15th March the former Yugoslav Government informed His Majesty's Government that they were going to expel M. Stoyadinovitch from Yugoslavia and that they hoped His Majesty's Government would admit him to some British territory and keep him there. His Majesty's Government intimated their readiness to comply with the wishes of the Yugoslav Government. M. Stoyadinovitch is now therefore in British hands and will be kept in detention in British territory.
