HC Deb 10 June 1912 vol 39 cc502-3
9. Mr. FELL

asked if the Italian Government claims to have annexed the Island of Rhodes and the other islands in the Ægean Sea which have recently been occupied by Italian troops?


So far as I am aware, no such claim has been made by the Italian Government.

53. Mr. HUNT

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether Italy is using or has used her merchant ships as auxiliary cruisers in the war with Turkey?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Churchill)

Judging by reports which have appeared in the Press, the answer appears to be in the affirmative. We have, however, no official information on the subject.
