HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 c1853W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government have communicated to their representatives in Athens for publication there the letter received by them from M. Venizelos and published on 15th December, in which he repudiates as a forgery a letter from himself reported to have been discovered in the House of General Korakas at Athens; and whether the representatives of the Allied Powers in Athens, who had previously issued a repudiation for their own part of the arrangements suggested in the forged letter, will now give equal publicity to the repudiation of M. Venizelos?


His Majesty's Minister at Athens has been instructed to secure, if possible, the publication of M. Venizelos's denunciation of the forgery published in Athens. I would observe, however, that none but Royalist papers are at present being published in the Greek capital.
