HC Deb 20 December 1916 vol 88 cc1457-8

asked the Prime Minister whether, in the interest of recruiting, he will state, for the information of small nations concerned, by what method the British Government intend, in the event of Allied success in the War, to afford to small nations an opportunity of realising the independence and integrity promised them in that event; whether it is a joint or common purpose of all the Allies or only a special purpose of each Power with reference to the small nations subject to itself; and whether the Government have considered the advisability of specifying the small nations to which the promise applies, so that they may know what it is that they are asked to fight for?


I have nothing to add to the speech delivered by the Prime Minister yesterday in this House.
