asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information regarding the bombarding of Samsun and other towns on the Pontine coast by Greek warships; whether any casualties were caused among non-combatants; and whether any American property was damaged by the bombardment and American or other European citizens killed and wounded?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

His Majesty's Government have received no information regarding the bombardment of other towns on the Pontine coast, and no details regarding the bombardment of Samsun which would enable me to add to the information which I gave to the hon. Member for Yeovil on this subject last Wednesday.

When does the hon. Gentleman expect to have the information about this matter, and may I put a further question dawn later?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

If the hon. and gallant Gentleman will put down his question again on Wednesday, I will endeavour to give him further information.
