§ 27. Sir ARTHUR FELL
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the battleship "Goeben" at Constantinople has been surrendered by the Turkish authorities; if it has been repaired; and if it is in charge of a British crew and every precaution is being taken to prevent her being scuttled and sunk?
§ The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Long)
I have been asked to reply to this question. The "Goeben" has been surrendered, and has been partially repaired. She is in charge of a Turkish skeleton crew in accordance with the 1103 terms of the Armistice, and every precaution is being taken to prevent her being scuttled and sunk.
§ Sir A. FELL
Having regard to the unfortunate events at Scapa Flow, may I ask if this vessel is in shallow water?
