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.

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.

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.

Is our government going to be such that Mesopotamia will in...
