HC Deb 29 June 1904 vol 137 cc6-7
MR. MOON (St.Pancras,N.)

To ask the Under - Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Mutessarifliks of Selfidge and Koritza, which are mostly inhabited by Christians of non-Slavonic origin, are at present excluded from the operation of the Muerzteg Agreement.

(Answered by Earl Percy.) This is at present the case so far as the reorganisation of the gendarmerie is concerned, but His Majesty's Ambassador has urged and will continue to urge that, as circumstances permit, the operation of this part of the scheme shall be further extended. In other respects the districts in question fall within the application of the scheme.
