HC Deb 21 July 1881 vol 263 cc1453-4

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If Her Majesty's Government, in conjunction with the other European Powers, and in order to give full effect to the Sixty-first Article of the Treaty of Berlin, intend to propose to the Sublime Porte that a form of Administration should be granted to Armenia similar to that which was adopted twenty years ago, and has worked so well in the case of the Lebanon?


Sir, I cannot make any detailed statement as to the nature of the reforms in Armenia which will be proposed to the Porte, until the matter has been further discussed by the Representatives of the Powers at Constantinople.
