HC Deb 10 July 1919 vol 117 cc2065-6W
Lieut-Colonel MALONE

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that arrangements are being made for the deportation of Miss May Kathleen Ydlibi and her father from their internment in France to Turkey; whether he is aware that Miss May Kathleen Ydlibi is a British subject and should presumably be repatriated to Great Britain; whether he can see his way to approach the French authorities to allow the family solicitors, Messrs. Enever and Aarons, to proceed to France in order to settle the domestic arrangements of this family and to have access to these persons; and whether, in communicating with the French authorities, he will request their retention in that country until their business affairs have been settled?


Further investigations are being made into the case of Miss Ydlibi, and I regret that until they have been carried out I am unable to reply in detail. I hope, however, to be able to make a further statement before very long.
