§ MR. MOON (St. Pancras, N.)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Foreign Office and the other Powers regard the tithe experiment carried out last autumn in thirty villages in the vilayet of Monastir as completely satisfactory, and when it is proposed to extend it to the other villages of the three vilayets.
§ EARL PERCY
According to the report received by His Majesty's Government the experiment seems to have proved a marked success. It is intended gradually to extend the new system to the three vilayets, and to apply it this year to seven cantons.
