Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Miscellaneous War Services (Foreign Office). (7 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: I am sorry to intervene in this Debate again, but a line of argument is being developed that I consider must be met. It started, I think, with the hon. and gallant Gentleman opposite (Captain W. Benn), who developed a picturesque story and pointed to the possibility of General Wrangel raising an army in Serbia for the purpose, as I understand, of attacking Soviet Russia. I have been in the...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Miscellaneous War Services (Foreign Office). (7 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: My hon. and gallant Friend knows that that is purely a debating point. I myself do study that well-known journal, but it is purely a debating point to ask me whether the Foreign Office has read the article in question.

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Miscellaneous War Services (Foreign Office). (7 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: The hon. and gallant Member knows quite sufficient about a Government Department to know that it is quite impossible for a Minister to know whether there is any individual in that Department who has ever heard this cock-and-bull story before or not. I have not heard it, and such advisers as I have been able to consult, men who are intimately acquainted with these questions, have never heard...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Miscellaneous War Services (Foreign Office). (7 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: The suggestion has been made, and it was made by my hon. and gallant Friend, that there is a possibility of building up a counter-revolutionary army in Serbia based on Wrangel and Denikin refugees. I say that that is a statement that ought not to be made in this House at all, and I repudiate it, from every source of knowledge which I have. I have never heard it before, and incidentally I may...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Miscellaneous War Services (Foreign Office). (7 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: I cannot say, but it can only be done, of course, with the advantage of the exchange. I do again, from my own knowledge and from that of others better informed than I am, most emphatically repudiate the suggestion that any part of the money which this Committee is asked to vote is, has been, or by any possibility could be, used for military purposes. My hon. and gallant Friend the Member for...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Miscellaneous War Services (Foreign Office). (7 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: I rise to disabuse the hon. Member opposite of any supposition that the money proposed to be granted under sub-head "O" is to be used for any other purpose than that mentioned. It may be that the hon. Member has not been present at the former discussions on this subject. If he had, he would have been aware that many people took part. For that purpose they had to borrow money from whom they...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Miscellaneous War Services (Foreign Office). (7 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: In answer to the question which has just been put to me by my Noble Friend opposite, I may say that this question of the Armenians in Cilicia has been very much in the mind of the Government, and unquestionably that matter will come up for earnest discussion at the Conference to be held with regard to the settlement of the Turkish Empire. I had no notion that a question of this magnitude...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Miscellaneous War Services (Foreign Office). (7 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: I said they had never been heard of before to-day.

Oral Answers to Questions — Near East. (6 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: As has previously been stated in the House, the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs is about to consult with representatives of France and Italy on the subject of the re-establishment of peace in the Near East. Pending the result of this meeting, it is not possible to make any statement regarding what subsequent action may be decided upon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Mexico. (2 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: Various reports have reached me with regard to this agreement, but I have no definite particulars on the subject. The reply to the second and third parts of the question is in the negative.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force.: Mexico. (2 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: Yes, I will make inquiries, and perhaps the hon. Gentleman will be able to assist me in the matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Spain (Commercial Treaty). (1 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: The answer is in the affirmative.

Oral Answers to Questions — Spain (Commercial Treaty). (1 Mar 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: I can assure my hon. Friend there is no avoidable delay.

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Afghanistan (Angora Mission). (28 Feb 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: The answer is in the negative.

Oral Answers to Questions — Egypt.: Milner Mission. (27 Feb 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: The answer is in the negative.

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Foreign Office. (24 Feb 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: It may be for the convenience of the Committee if I say a few words to amplify the note which appears on the Estimate. The Committee will observe that in point of fact the Foreign Office is not asking the Committee for any new money. What we are dealing with this afternoon is a question of an over-estimate. The Committee is generally aware that the Passport Department of the Foreign Office is...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Foreign Office. (24 Feb 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: Only one point has been raised which calls for a definite answer and that is the suggestion of the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy), that passports for undesirable people are perforated in a peculiar way, so as to warn the authorities abroad. I have had the opportunity of refreshing my memory with regard to this matter, and I can assure my hon. and gallant...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Foreign Office. (24 Feb 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: It is purely a matter of accountancy. The Passport Office costs £75,000 a year. It is now making a profit of something like £50,000 this year, but there was an over-estimate. It was supposed that the Appropriation-in-Aid would come to £126,000 for this year. That is not in the way of being realised, and, therefore, it is necessary to adjust the accounts by asking the House for this money.

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Supplementary Estimate, 1921–22.: Foreign Office. (24 Feb 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: As I think my hon. and gallant Friend will agree that we should get this Vote as soon as possible, may I point out that the authorised staff of the Passport Office is 276, but that in point of fact only 214 are, employed, and every care is taken by the head of the Department to adjust the staff to the volume of the work done. The staff at the present time is not equal, or anything like equal,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Peace Treaties.: Bulgaria. (23 Feb 1922)

Mr Cecil Harmsworth: The question is quite independent of the proposed reconsideration of the terms of the Treaty of Peace with Turkey, and therefore does not call for discussion at the forthcoming meeting of Foreign Ministers at Paris.
