Motion for Adjournment.: Govebnment Policy. (17 Nov 1919)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: ...the facts. The nettle has got to be grasped. We were told in the last Parliament that it was a delicate question. We hoped that agreement would be come to between Emir Feisul and his victorious Arabs, ourselves and the French. We are still in doubt as to whether that question has been settled, and, quite apart altogether from the Turkish Peace Treaty, it is vital to the settling down of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Peace Treaty.: Egypt and Soudan (Civil Services). (27 Nov 1919)

Colonel Ralph Glyn: one of the main causes of the present disturbed condition of Egypt, since adequate supervision of native officials was, and is, impossible; whether the new obligations of this country to other Arabic-speaking countries necessitates a new system by the formation of a Civil Service responsible for assisting in the good government of all Arabic-speaking countries under a British...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services Supplementary Estimates, 1919–20.: Board of Education. (9 Dec 1919)

Mr Walter Elliot: ...chairs of the University of London. While the Secretary of State for War will pay a medical man £900 a year to exile himself to Mesopotamia and to treat the ophthalmic eyes of a few savage Arabs, the educational authorities in this country will give a professor only £600 a year to occupy one of the leading chairs in medicine. The disproportion is too great, and needs to be remedied. I...

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates and Supplementary Estimate, 1910–20.: Additional Number of Land Forces. (15 Dec 1919)

Commander Hon. Joseph Kenworthy: their own country, as we have done with such success in our West African Colonies, and particularly our East African Colonies. It is hard to believe that that would be impossible, because the Arab in the past when he has been well led has been a good fighting man. If our rule there is beneficent and sympathetic there is no reason why we could not get a trustworthy native Army. If that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Near East (Railway Control). (18 Dec 1919)

Mr David Lloyd George: Aleppo, and beyond that is part of the Baghdad railway. It is at present under French control, though I have no precise information as to the relationship between the control officers and the Arab administration in the Arab area.

I am a personal friend of Prince Feisul, and a very close friend of Colonel Lawrence...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech.: Peace Settlement. (12 Feb 1920)

Hon. Aubrey Herbert: is a possible policy. On the other hand we might have said that on January 5th, 1918, the Prime Minister promised the Trade Union Congress that not only were we going to obtain freedom for the Arabs and for the Armenians, but that we were not fighting for Constantinople and for Asia Minor, which we called the homeland of the Turks, nor for Thrace. If we had done that, we should at least...

Orders of the Day — MR. Churchill's Statement. (23 Feb 1920)

Mr Winston Churchill: to pay its way, or to be anything but a drain and a burden upon the British Treasury. But Palestine is prejudicially affected by the fighting that is going on in Syria between the French and the Arabs, and it is affected by the unrest in Egypt at the present time, and Mesopotamia is disturbed also by the excitement of the Arabs due to the disturbances in Syria; secondly, by the...

Orders of the Day — Turks and Constantinople. (26 Feb 1920)

Mr David Lloyd George: greater detail. The first is the freeing of the non-Turkish communities. In our statement of January, 1918, we made it perfectly clear that we were entitled to do so. Greeks, Armenians, Kurds, Arabs—wherever you have a majority of any race forming a separate community, there Turkish rule must cease.

Sir Alfred Mond: ...motor cars, and it has, therefore, become necessary to erect a garage. In regard to Morocco, the position is very serious. The buildings occupied at Casablanca, Rabat and Mogador were held for the Arabs for use as Consular buildings only. The French have now taken over the lands administration, and have offered to the British Government the freehold on favourable terms, the figures...

Oral Answers to Questions — Syria. (22 Mar 1920)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: ...that the Allied Powers cannot at present recognise the validity of the recent proceedings in Syria, whereby the sovereign independence of Syria has been proclaimed, they have reassured him and the Arabs that the Allied Powers will adhere to the pledges given by the British authorities to King Hussein when the Arabs came into the War with us against the Turks, and also to the joint...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Army Estimates, 1920–21. (22 Mar 1920)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: ...of the General Staff in India with that of the General Staff in Whitehall, because now that the East has been brought to the West by these new responsibilities in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Palestine, and Arabia, and Simla and Whitehall have a new area of responsibility, it is absolutely essential that the War Authorities, the Defence Authorities, in Simla and Whitehall should henceforth work in...

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1920–21.: Number of Land Forces. (22 Mar 1920)

Mr Winston Churchill: ...will have relieved the tension there to a considerable extent. There is the Palestine situation. That, of course, is affected by the French occupation of Syria and the consequent fighting with the Arabs, which not only has disturbed the French zone, but has made special precautions necessary in our own area. There is the situation in Constantinople. We were obliged last week to occupy...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs. (25 Mar 1920)

Mr Herbert Asquith: ..., to advance to Bagdad, and subsequently to Mosul; and I think we have been even further. We have had to encounter from time to time, and, I suppose, are encountering still, the sporadic attacks of Arabs and Kurds. Mesopotamia is proverbially a vague and indefinite term. Mesopotamia, as a geographical area, has really no natural frontier, and, although I am quite prepared to believe, and,...
