HC Deb 19 October 1916 vol 86 c707
12. Mr. LYNCH

asked whether, in regard to Greece and the Grecian Isles, it is the intention of this country to recognise the Provisional Government established by M. Venizelos?


I regret that at present I am unable to add anything to the answer given to the hon. Member for the St. Augustine's Division of Kent on the 17th instant. The question is one to be settled in agreement with the Allied Governments and not one in which His Majesty's Government can take separate action.


This question is so urgent and I am so deeply dissatisfied with the entire action of the Government that, at the end of questions, I propose to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House.


May I ask whether it is expedient and in the public interest to raise delicate questions as to our relations with Greece involving our Allies at this moment?

58. Mr. LYNCH

asked the Prime Minister whether, in regard to the situation in Greece, and also to the military operations in the Balkans, considerations of a secondary order have been allowed to intervene to the detriment of the chances of success of the Allies?


No, Sir; this is quite untrue.
