§ MR. EASTWICK
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether he is aware that a Copy of the Russian Map mentioned in "Ocean Highways," page 79, referred to in a question on the 15th of May, is in the Library of the United Service Institution, and that it shows a green line which marks the Russian Frontier as extending to the south of Marv?
§ VISCOUNT ENFIELD
Sir, although I have the honour of being a Member of the United Service Institution, I cannot undertake to say whether a Copy of the Russian Map mentioned in the Ocean Highways is in the Library of that building or no; but, with all respect to the hon. Member, I must remind him that this work is not an official publication, and that our Foreign Office can hardly be held to be responsible for its maps or contents. I think, however, there must be some misapprehension in the matter, as in the maps I have seen the line extending to the south of Merv marks, not the Russian Frontier, but that of Afghanistan.
