HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 cc1314-5

I should like to ask the Prime Minister whether it is possible to make any statement to the House as to the position of affairs in Roumania?


I do not think it is possible, or, at any rate, desirable at the moment to say more than that the military situation in Roumania is engaging the most anxious attention, not only of His Majesty's Government, but of all the Allies. For many weeks past they have taken, and are taking, every possible step to support our gallant comrades in Roumania in the splendid struggle which they are making. I hope we shall not take an unduly pessimistic view, for in Russia, in France, in Italy, and here in Great Britain, there have been concerted measures, and each of us is doing all in his power to support Roumania in her struggle for liberty and independence.
