asked the Prime Minister whether he can make a statement on the recent military and diplomatic developments on the Russian and Turkish side of the Caucasus?

Mr. Butler

My Noble Friend has received no official confirmation of the incidents on this frontier recently reported in the Press.

There is always activity everywhere, but we have no confirmation of the extent of the incidents which have been reported in the Press.
