asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, early in 1916, it was agreed that a monthly sub- 2154W vention of 400,000 francs should be paid to the Montenegrin Government in equal proportions by France and Great Britain; whether this promise has been kept; if not, why the promise has been broken; and why at this time a Montenegrin fighting corps, under the national flag, is not allowed when Montenegro is willing to form one?
§ Lord R. CECIL
As regards the first three parts of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply returned to the hon. Member for Wirrall on the 22nd of November last. The last part of the question is a military matter outside the province of the Foreign Office.
