Greece (Trade Credits).

Oral Answers to Questions — India. – in the House of Commons on 21st February 1922.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. L. MALONE:

7.

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he has any evidence to show that the proposal to grant credits to Greece under the Trade Facilities Act with British guarantees, which will enable the Greeks to continue their attacks on Turkey, is reacting most unfavourably on Moslem sentiments and militating against the restoration of calm in India; and, if so, will he use his influence to defer granting these credits until peaceful relations are established between Greece and Turkey?

It ought to be widely known in India that the facilities which are open to Greece are open to all foreign countries, including Turkey, and this knowledge should remove any apprehensions that may have been aroused.
