81. Sir J. D. REES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Turks have intimated their acceptance of the settlement now proposed; and, if not, to which provision thereof they take exception?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
No answer has been received from Turkey.
§ 83. Mr. AUBREY HERBERT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the proposed terms of peace in the Near East were arrived at independently by the three foreign Ministers, or whether this settlement, which is vital to the well-being of Greece, Turkey, and Bulgaria, was discussed with the representatives of those countries?
§ Mr. HARMSWORTH
I would refer the hon. Member to the first paragraph of the official communiqué issued by the Conference at Paris on 26th March, where it is stated that conversations took place with the representatives both of Greece and Turkey. As the Bulgarian Treaty was not under discussion, no representative of Bulgaria was consulted.
