Let F be a free Lie algebra of finite rank over a field K. We prove that if an ideal <(v) over tilde > of the algebra F/gamma(m+1) (F') contains a primitive element (u) over tilde then the element (v) over tilde is primitive. We also show that, in the Lie algebra F/gamma(3)(F)' there exists an element (v) over bar such that the ideal <(v) over bar > contains a primitive element (u) over bar but, (u) over bar and (v) over bar are not conjugate by means of an inner automorphism.
