§ 13. Mr. DILLON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Royalist Government at Athens has officially announced that up to 19th February 15,849 soldiers had been transported to the Peloponnesus; whether the Entente Ministers are satisfied that this figure fulfils the demands of their Note; and how many troops still remain at the disposal of King Constantine north of the Peloponnesus?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Balfour)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative; as regards the second part, I would observe that although the evacuation of troops and Artillery is proceeding satisfactorily, yet there remain certain demands such as the surrender of rifles which are still unfulfilled. As regards the last part it is estimated that the total Greek forces remaining in Northern Greece will be 6,000 Regulars and 3,000 Gendarmerie.
