HC Deb 22 May 1879 vol 246 cc1005-6

asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the influence of the British Government is being exerted to procure the acceptance by Turkey of the line of frontier for Greece recommended by the Congress of Berlin, or, on the contrary, in supporting Turkey in offering a less favourable line; and, specially, whether Her Majesty's Go- vernment are supporting or opposing a line which would include the City of Janina in the Kingdom of Greece?


Her Majesty's Government do not think it would be convenient, at the present time, to enter into details with regard to these proceedings; but I may say that the influence of the Government has been, and is being, exerted in order to procure the acceptance by Turkey of the recommendations of the Congress of Berlin, which were of a general character. Papers are being prepared on the subject, and will be laid on the Table.
