§ Mr. SPOOR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any information regarding the alleged deportation from Mesopotamia to Persia of a number of Mahommedan leaders and of the deportation to an unknown region of Asheikh Khalesy; whether, if these acts have taken place, he will state the reason; and whether, in view of the resentment which will be aroused amongst the Mahommedan population of Mesopotamia, steps will be taken for the return of the deportees?
§ Captain HACKING
I have nothing to add to the answer given yesterday to the hon. Member for Motherwell (Mr. Newbold).
