§ Mr. NOEL BUXTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether the constitution of Samos, though guaranteed by some of the great Powers, has, under the regimé of the present prince, been violated; and whether the maintenance of a Turkish garrison in Samos is contrary to the constitution?
§ Sir E. GREY
With regard to the first paragraph of the question, I am aware that complaints have been made of certain irregularities on the part of the Prince Governor, but I have no recent information on the subject. With regard to the second paragraph, the Turkish Government have the right to maintain a small number of troops in the island.
