§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Lieut.-Colonel Stanley)
I am informed that, as far as can be ascertained by local inquiry, the following property has been requisitioned from the Turkish Government by the military authorities at Constantinople:
Royal Engineer stores of various kinds to the approximate value of £57,000. Of this, building materials have been incorporated in works services, and machinery is either in use or in Royal Engineer store.
Signal stores to the approximate value of £850. Two wireless stations 802 were also taken over in situ, and are used by the British Authorities in conjunction with the Allies.
A number of motor vehicles were requisitioned, but these were returned in 1919. There are still with the British Naval Base four motor cars which were requisitioned.
It is impossible to say whether any of the property belonged to the Young Turk party.
