§ SIR R. TEMPLE (Surrey, Kingston)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government will ask the British Ambassador at Constantinople to use his good offices with the Turkish Authorities to obtain early settlement of the pending cause between the Barker family and Jed, at Aleppo, by arbitration or other means?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir E. GREY, Northumberland, Ber-
Her Majesty's Embassy at Constantinople and the Consulate at Aleppo have done their utmost to advise and assist the claimants, who, however, have unfortunately not been disposed to follow the advice given to them. This assistance is still at their disposal, if they will avail themselves of it.
