§ MR. DILLON
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received a note from the Bulgarian Government in reference to the recent massacre of Bulgarian peasants in the village of Karadjovo; whether the Government have any Report on the particulars of this massacre from British agents in Macedonia; whether the massacre was carried out by Greeks and Turks; whether the British Government has addressed any remonstrances to the Greek and Turkish Governments; and when further Papers on Macedonia will be circulated.
§ SIR EDWARD GREY
The Answer to the first Question is in the negative; the Answer to the second is in the affirmative; the massacre was, it is believed, carried out by Greeks and a certain number of Mussulmans in their pay, the leader had come from Greece a few weeks before, having evaded the Greek authorities; His Majesty's Government have recently made strong representations to the Greek Government in regard to the conduct of the Greek bands in Macedonia; they have also made representations on the same subject to the Ottoman Government; further Papers on Macedonia will be laid when the negotiations now in progress have been completed.
