HC Deb 07 December 1911 vol 32 c1557

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the French Republic has issued a circular forbidding all export of provisions across the frontier of Tunis into Tripoli, while a large trade is carried on from Tunis to Tripoli by sea in provisions for the Italian troops; whether any protests against this breach of neutrality or against any other breaches of neutrality have been received from the Government of Turkey; and, if so, whether he will lay them upon the Table of the House?


I have no knowledge of the circular in question, nor have the Ottoman Government made any representation to His Majesty's Government on this subject.
