§ 21. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked what British men-of-war are at present at Vladivostock or other Far Eastern ports: whether they have orders with respect to commerce to Vladivostock and other ports now in the hands of the Russian revolutionaries; and, if so, what are these orders?
§ Mr. LONG
H.M.S. "Carlisle" is at Vladivostock for the purpose of protecting British interests: there are no British men-of-war at other Russian ports in the Far East. "Carlisle" has been instructed as necessary to give effect to the policy of His Majesty's Government in regard to trade with Russia.
