asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of their active efforts here and now on behalf of a Great Germany and their openly expressed contempt for the Government of this country, whose guests they are, he will assure both the House and the nation that no official countenance or support whatsoever will be afforded to any association of Germans in this country calling themselves, or acting as, Free Germans?
