§ Mr. Hickmet
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement upon the militarisation of the island of Lemnos by Greece, and the effect that that will have upon Anglo-Greek and Anglo-Turkish relations.
§ Mr. Renton
The question of the militarisation of the island of Lemnos has been a matter of long-standing dispute between Greece and Turkey. Britain is an ally of both countries. We hope that they will soon be able to resolve this and other disputes relating to the Aegean.
