HC Deb 19 October 1916 vol 86 cc727-8
53. Major HUNT

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the peril of Roumania and of the anxiety felt in this country on the matter, he can give the House the assurance that everything possible will be done by this country to save Roumania from the fate of Serbia?


The situation in Roumania has been for some time past the subject of careful consideration by ourselves and our Allies in concert and everything which is possible is being done.


When may we expect some information and a statement by the Government as regards Roumania, having regard to the general anxiety that prevails at present?


I do not think—I am sure my right hon. Friend will agree with me—that it would be desirable to make a statement as to what is being done militarily in regard to the matter, but as soon as possible the Government will make a statement.

Major HUNT

Will the Government give an assurance that they will not be too late again, as usual?
