HC Deb 10 November 1926 vol 199 cc1055-6
3. Viscount SANDON

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs why the Turkish authorities, on the very morning of the day when the St. Barnabas pilgrims were to land at Anzac and Suvla to visit the war graves, suddenly cancelled their permission and prevented the landing; whether the Government have made representations; and, if so, with what result?


This incident has formed the subject of a full report from His Majesty's Charge d'Affaires at Constantinople, who made strong representations to the Turkish authorities. His representations, however, have not yet led to any result, or explanation of their action.
