asked whether the whereabouts of Enver Pasha, late Minister of War in Turkey, are now known; and whether steps are being taken to secure his apprehension, with a view to his being tried for the massacre of Armenians, the torture of Arabs, the killing of British and Indian prisoners of war, and the many other infamies for which he was responsible during the War?


Enver Pasha's present whereabouts are not known, but His Majesty's Government are, for their part, resolved to bring him to account. I understand that provision to this effect will be made in the peace settlement with Turkey.
