HC Deb 27 May 1879 vol 246 cc1360-1

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, On what day the Greek Papers will be in the hands of Members?


said, in the case of the Greek Papers, it had been found necessary to send some to Athens, others to Constantinople. It would also be necessary to send others to Paris, Vienna, and Rome, before they could be published. He hoped, however, they would be in the hands of hon. Members before long. He did not like to make any promise, but he hoped they would be distributed after the holidays. In regard to the further Papers relating to Cyprus, he had formally presented these that day, and they would be in the hands of hon. Members in a few days.


asked, Whether the Greek Papers would contain any despatches in reference to Crete, or whether any Papers relating to Crete might be expected?


replied that the Greek Papers did not contain any despatches relating to Crete. That subject had been treated by itself, and Papers were being prepared with regard to it. A Blue Book had already been published relating to Crete, and it was proposed to continue to keep the despatches respecting Crete separate from the Greek Papers.
