Repeats the point that the Parliamentary Labour Party have not taken the opportunities afforded them to criticise the Government's Russian policy in Parliament and points out that the Bolsheviks have invaded Poland, are trying to stir up war in Persia [later Iran], Afghanistan and India, and are oppressing their own people.
