asked the Prime Minister whether he has any information that, as a result of the Pact of Peace at Genoa, there has been either a partial or complete demobilisation of the forces of the Russian Soviet Government?

As the forces of the Russian Soviet Government were not mobilised, the question does not arise.

Did not the Prime Minister urge, as one of the reasons for not taking action quite recently on a certain event, that there were great forces massed on the frontier, the House of Commons being ignorant of that fact? Were those forces there?

That is a different question. This is a question of mobilisation.

There was no mobilisation of forces, because that would mean five millions, but there were forces on that frontier.

Have any of the forces that were on the frontier, known to the Prime Minister, been demobilised?

That is another question. If the hon. Gentleman will put that down, I will answer it.
