Lieut.-Colonel A. HERBERT
asked the Prime Minister whether it is possible, in regard to the Smyrna massacres, to make a fuller statement than has hitherto been made based upon the military Reports in the possession of the War Office; and whether the Government's attitude of secrecy is detrimental to British interests?
I must refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to a similar question put by him on 4th August. In view of the appointment of a Commission of Inquiry, it would obviously be improper for His Majesty's Government to make any further statement on the subject. It is not clear to what interests the last part of the question refers.
