§ 48. Lord C. BERESFORD
asked the Prime Minister if he will inform the House who is responsible for the operations in the Dardanelles; whether it was intended to be in the nature of combined naval and military operations; and whether 399 the ultimate success of the operations will be considerably delayed owing to the naval attack having been delivered before the Army was landed?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
These operations are being jointly conducted by the Navy and Army in co-operation, under the responsibility of His Majesty's Government. It is not desirable at the present stage to say anything further.
