HC Deb 30 June 1914 vol 64 c205

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs a question, of which I have given private notice: Whether he has received any further information as to the safety or otherwise of Mr. Anthony Dell, correspondent of the "Daily Citizen," who has been taken prisoner by the insurgents in Albania; and whether he will make strong representations for the immediate release of Mr. Dell and his safe passage to this country?


I have heard nothing since yesterday, when the British delegate on the International Commission in Albania informed me by telegraph that a letter had been received from Mr. Dell, stating that he was well and in no danger, and would probably shortly be released. The newspaper was informed of this at once by telephone. Mr. Lamb will, of course, do all he can to help Mr. Dell.
