HC Deb 26 February 1895 vol 30 cc1572-3
MR. F. A. CHANNING (Northampton, E)

I beg to ask the Undersecretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is able to state whether the instructions and regulations, settled beforehand by the Powers, as to the rights and duties of the delegates representing the European Powers on the Armenian Inquiry Commission, are being fully observed and carried out on the spot; and if no exact information on this point has yet reached the Foreign Office, whether it will be immediately obtained from the delegates themselves?


Several telegraphic communications of the proceedings of the Commission have been received from the British delegates, and the duties entrusted to the delegates were being fully and satisfactorily discharged.


asked whether there was any foundation for these insinuations of want of bona fides on the part of Turkey?


I have already stated that the duties entrusted to the British delegates are being fully and satisfactorily discharged. I do not understand the question to contain any such insinuation.
