§ SIR A. HAYTER (Walsall)
I beg to ask the Under - Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any report has been received of the inquiry into the massacre at Kuktish in the Salonica vilayet on February 15th by the Turkish troops, in which forty unarmed persons were murdered, forty-three houses burnt, 117 houses looted, and twelve women violated; and whether any compensation will be paid or any punishment inflicted upon the authors of this outrage.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Earl PERCY, Kensington, S.)
The figures quoted by the hon. Member do not tally with those mentioned in the reports which have reached us, but the findings of the Commission of Inquiry have not yet been communicated to His Majesty's Government. We understand that a sum of £150 has been granted by the Turkish Government for the immediate relief of distress.
