§ SIR GEORGE CAMPBELL
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether anything whatever is being done towards giving practical effect to the 23rd Article of the Treaty of Berlin, by establishing the autonomous administration of the various provinces of European Turkey as there stipulated, especially in Macedonia and Old Servia, 202 where so many lamentable disturbances and oppressions are taking place?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
My hon. Friend is aware that I have a personal interest in the subject to which he alludes; but I regret to say that, notwithstanding the urgent appeals of Her Majesty's Government, the Porte has hitherto done nothing towards carrying out its obligations to put in force the Organic Statute drawn up by the European Commission under the Article in question.
§ SIR H. DRUMMOND WOLFF
Will the noble Lord lay on the Table the appeals that have been made to the Porte?
