§ MR. CHARLES ALLEN (Gloucestershire, Stroud)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the European officers of gendarmerie in Macedonia will have the power to march their men for the suppression or punishment of outrages, or will their power be limited to reporting such outrages.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Earl PERCY,) Kensington, S.
We understand that in the event of disturbances of the character indicated, the European officers would receive instructions from General Giorgis and the staff, and would transmit them to the Turkish officers who will have the immediate command of the force.
§ EARL PERCY
They will not have the right to act on their own responsibility without the orders of General Giorgis.
