HC Deb 28 July 1898 vol 63 c300

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the reply of the Porte, in reference to the demands made on behalf of British subjects for compensation for losses sustained by them during the Armenian massacres, repudiates all responsibility for such losses; and, if so, what action the British Government propose to take?


AS I stated on the 25th instant, the reply of the Porte, which is of the character described in the Question, was only received on that day, and Her Majesty's Government must at least have time to consider it before they are prepared to state what action they propose to take.
