36. Mr. C. PALMER
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the refusal of the United States to accept the mandate for Armenia, the Allies have yet come to any decision as to the proffer of the mandate to some other Power; and whether, in view of the grave respon- 876 sibilities involved in the mandate, President Wilson's delimitation of the boundaries will precede any new attempt to secure an acceptance of the Armenian mandate?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
No new attempt to secure an acceptance of the Armenian mandate is under consideration at present.
May I ask whether President Wilson's delimitation will be personal, and paid for by him; or by whom will it be paid for?
