§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
wished to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, before the Motion of the hon. Baronet was withdrawn, Whether any credence should be given to the statements repeatedly made in the public Press, to the effect that the plan of a joint occupation of Bulgaria had been given up?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
Sir, I am not prepared to say that the plan is given up; but that is a Question of which I think it would be more convenient that Notice should be given. I do not understand that the plan has been absolutely given up; but, undoubtedly, questions have arisen with regard to it, and the attention of the 525 Powers has been turned in another direction.
§ SIR JULIAN GOLDSMID
, while expressing his readiness to withdraw his Motion, said, that, inconsequence of the answers which he had received from the Chancellor of the Exchequer, he would, in accordance with the views of the right hon. Gentleman, repeat several of his Questions on an early occasion.
§ Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
