HC Deb 04 December 1919 vol 122 cc562-3
30. Captain MOREING

asked the Prime Minister whether His Majesty's Government will regard with sympathy the desire of the inhabitants of Bessarabia to be reunited to Roumania?


It has been the policy of His Majesty's Government, throughout the Peace Conference to endeavour to unite national majorities wherever it is practicable to do so. They will approach the consideration of the Bessarabian problem in that spirit.

71. Lord R. CECIL

asked the Prime Minister what provisions had been made for the protection of religious, racial, and linguistic minorities in Roumania?


The Roumanian Government have been required by the Supreme Council in Paris to sign a Convention protecting those minorities before 5th December, in order that the terms of Peace with Hungary may be settled.
