HC Deb 21 May 1897 vol 49 c1036
MR. J. C. FLYNN (Cork, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Sir Philip Currie has addressed a letter to Tewfik Pasha in reference to the recent massacre of Armenians at Tokat; whether he can state to the House the nature of this communication; and what action the representatives of the Great Powers propose to take in regard to the miscarriage of justice which has taken place?


Her Majesty's Ambassador at Constantinople has not yet reported to us upon the result of the investigation that has been conducted by the Turkish Commission at Tokat; nor do we know whether he has addresed a Note on the subject to the Porte. I have no doubt that we shall very shortly hear from him on the subject.


When shall I put a further Question?


If the hon. Gentleman likes to put a Question down on Monday, I will try to answer it. I will let him know as soon as we hear.
