HC Deb 21 February 1902 vol 103 c713
MR. CHARLES ALLAN (Gloucestershire, Stroud)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the attention of His Majesty's Government has been drawn to the deportation of Marshal Fuad Pasha by the Sultan of Turkey; whether he is aware that this is the same officer who saved the Armenians and Europeans on the Asiatic shore of the Bosphorus from possible massacre; and whether he is in a position to give the House any further information in the matter.


We have been informed that Marshal Fuad Pasha, who holds a distinguished position in the personal suite of the Sultan, was recently arrested, and sent to Syria in one of the Sultan's yachts. It is true that during the disturbances at Constantinople he took effective measures for the preservation of public order in the district for which he was responsible.
