§ 52. Mr. A. WILLIAMS
asked the Prime Minister whether he can make a statement as to the present position in Armenia; and whether its boundaries have been delimited by President Wilson?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
No radical change has taken place during the last few months in the position in Armenia; nor has President Wilson yet given his decision as to the future boundaries. It is reported that Turkish Nationalist forces are about to attack the Erivan Republic, but it is hoped that the military supplies and fuel furnished by Great Britain and France will enable the Armenian forces to hold their own.
§ Lord ROBERT CECIL
When the right hon. Gentleman says that there has been no change, does he include the Armenians in Cilicia as well as those in the Erivan Republic?
Sir J. D. REES
Will an end be put to the position in which the Armenians are becoming permanent pensioners of the British taxpayer?
