To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Turkish Government have granted a concession of the mineral oil lying between the Persian frontier and the Tigris to the financial group representing the proposed Baghdad Railway; and, if so, whether this concession has been made as a contribution by the Turkish Government to the promised kilometric guarantee of that railway.

(Answered by Secretary Sir Edward Grey.) No, Sir, I have no information of the grant of any such concession.
