asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the outstanding claims on the part of British subjects to reparation from Turkey in respect of injuries sustained by them in the late War, it is proposed to substitute any, and what, provision in the Peace Treaty with that country for those under the Peace Treaties with Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Bulgaria, rendering the private movable property of their nationals liable to expropriation?

I have been asked to reply. I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the provisions dealing with this matter in the Treaty of Sèvres, under Article 291 of which Turkish property in Allied territory may be charged with claims by Allied nationals in respect of their property in Turkey.
