HC Deb 18 August 1919 vol 119 cc1906-7
57. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he can indicate on broad lines before the House rises what the Peace Conference proposes to do in respect of Mesopotamia?

Lieut.-Colonel GILMOUR

The Secretary of State for India has been asked to reply to this question. The general outlines of the probable future administration of Mesopotamia have for long been a matter of common anticipation. But the decision of the Peace Conference on the subject has been postponed until such time as the future of the entire regions constituting the former Turkish Empire can be determined.
