HC Deb 07 November 1916 vol 87 c8
9. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the pledges given in regard to safeguarding the Allied communications by the Government in Athens have now all been completely fulfilled?


The Allied Governments have no reason as yet to be dissatisfied with the manner in which the Greek authorities are carrying out, in conjunction with the French and British officers designated for the purpose, the pledges to which the hon. and gallant Member refers. If there should be any reasonable apprehension on the point, I presume the Allied Governments will not hesitate to take effective action, but the House will realize that we cannot make definite statements as regards the future except in consultation and agreement with the Allies.
