HC Deb 22 October 1919 vol 120 c16
16. Mr. BRIANT

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress had been made with the Treaties of Peace with Austria, Turkey, and Bulgaria, respectively?


The Treaty of Peace with Austria was signed at Saint-Germain en Laye on 10th September. The Treaty of Peace with Bulgaria was handed to the Bulgarian Plenipotentiaries at Paris on 19th September. The Bulgarian Delegation was informed that they should formulate their observations on the Treaty within twenty-five days. This period has since been extended by a further ten days. As regards the Turkish Treaty, its further consideration has been delayed in order to enable the United States Government to state their intentions.


Can the hon. Gentleman give us no date as to when the presentation of the Turkish Treaty is likely to take place?


The latter part of my answer conveys the intimation that that must be uncertain.
