HC Deb 25 March 1913 vol 50 c1454
2. Sir J. D. REES

asked how long a squadron of the Central Indian Horse is to remain in Shiraz; and whether the Government has arrived at any conclusion as to what steps should be taken in view of the anarchy prevailing in the sphere called neutral, but in which British interests predominate in Southern Persia?


The Central India Horse as was stated last week are about to be withdrawn from Shiraz. As regards the second part of the question, the views of His Majesty's Government were given to the House by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs in his speech on 14th February to which I have nothing to add at present.
