HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 cc383-4
19. 19. Mr. RONALD McNEILL

asked the Secretary of State for' Foreign Affairs whether a Commission, under the presidency of General d'Esperey, has been, appointed by the Allied and Associated Powers to inquire on the spot as to events that have occurred in Montenegro since November, 1918; if so, under what circumstances was it appointed; what nationalities were represented on the Commission; what persons was it composed of; what was the method of inquiry; have the Commission issued their Report; if so, on what evidence was it based; and was the Commission appointed after consultation with the Montenegrin Government and with its approval?


My hon. Friend is no doubt referring to a statement which appeared in the Press of 3rd March. I am unaware of the appointment of any such Commission as is suggested, but I am making inquiries of His Majesty's Chargé des Affaires for Montenegro.


What is the Montenegrin Government which is referred to in the last part of the question; has not Montenegro decided to join Serbia?


I am afraid that I must have notice of that question.
