HC Deb 11 December 1922 vol 159 c2375
78 and 79. Mr. NOEL BUXTON

asked the Prime Minister (1) whether, in order to give to Bulgaria the effective commercial outlet to the Ægean Sea promised by the Treaty of Neuilly, His Majesty's Government will urge on the Allies the need of establishing Bulgarian administration over the proposed corridor and over the port of Dedeagach;

(2) whether, in view of the pledge given by the Allies at the London Conference of March, 1921, to provide a territory for the Armenians of Turkey, His Majesty's Government will confer with the Powers, including Russia, at Lausanne with a view to obtaining an accession of territory to the Armenian Republic in return for cession of territory to Turkey on the northern borders of Mesopotamia?


I regret that I can make no statement while negotiations which include these subjects are still proceeding at Lausanne.
