asked the Prime Minister if he will state when it is anticipated that treaties of Peace will be presented for signature to the delegates of the Austrian, Hungarian, Bulgarian, and Turkish Governments, respectively; and whether steps will be taken to expedite the conclusion of the treaty of Peace with the Turkish Government in order that the pledges given by the Allied Governments to the Arabs, Armenians, and Zionists that they shall be given free national status and delivered from Turkish misrule may be fulfilled without further delay?

It is not possible to name a date. I can assure the hon. and gallant Member, however, that there will be no avoidable delay in the matter.

Can the right hon. Gentleman give us an undertaking that we shall have a full discussion on each one of these treaties, especially the Turkish Treaty, in which very intricate questions are involved?
