asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the present whereabouts of Talaat Pasha, late Prime Minister of Turkey, and Signor Carasso, grand secretary of the Committee of Union and Progress, are now known; and whether these two men have been or will be charged with responsibility for crimes against the laws of Islam, war, and humanity, carried out under their orders against Arabs, Armenians, Jews, Greeks, and others during the War?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

Talaat Pasha's whereabouts are not known. Signor Carasso is at present detained in an Allied hospital at Constantinople. For the rest, I may refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to his previous question.
