HC Deb 13 May 1918 vol 106 cc15-6
15. Mr. KING

asked the Secretary for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the terms of the Treaty of Peace signed by Roumania have appeared in the Press; whether the terms as published are authentic; whether the Allies and the British Government recognise this treaty; whether it is their intention to strive, with the consent of Roumania, for a revision of these terms; and whether Roumania still remains in alliance with this country or has resumed the status of neutrality?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I have no reason to doubt that the terms as published are authentic. As soon as the treaty has been formally ratified, Roumania will cease to be an Allied State and will assume the status of a neutral. As regards the third and fourth parts of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply returned to him on the 11th of March last.
