HC Deb 04 May 1938 vol 335 c850
4. Mr. Thorne

asked the Prime Minister whether he can state the text of the Greco-Turkey agreement, signed at Athens on Wednesday last; whether that agreement has been reported to the League of Nations; and whether the agreement links up with the Government agreement with Turkey?

Mr. Butler

I have received a French translation of the treaty to which the hon. Member refers, published when the treaty was initialled on 28th February, and I am arranging for an English translation to be placed in the Library of the House. As this treaty was only signed on 27th April and has not yet come into force, I do not imagine that it has yet been registered with the Secretariat of the League of Nations. As regards the last part of the question, the new treaty, so far as I am aware, is not inconsistent with any instrument in force between His Majesty's Government and the Turkish Government.
