§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to the very important statements in the newspapers this afternoon, Whether he can give us any information as to the passage of the Dardanelles by the Fleet?
THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHE-QUER
There has been delay in the Fleet going up to Constantinople, and I am not able at present conveniently to enter into the subject generally. Negotiations are going on; but there is no change in the intentions of the Government on the subject.
