§ SIR WILFRID LAWSON (Cumberland, Cockermouth)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury if lie had any news confirming or contradicting the statement about fighting in Crete and slaughter of British troops?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR, Manchester, E.)
I have received no news, and my right hon. Friend the Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs, who would probably get information before I should, is not here. No doubt he will be able to give authentic information to-morrow.
