§ MR. J. H. DALZIEL (Kirkcaldy Burghs)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether 857 any representation has been made to the Italian Government in respect to matters contained in the recently published Green-book; and, if so, what explanation has been received?
* MR. CURZON
Her Majesty's Government have made a friendly representation to the Italian Government on the subject of the publication of Dispatches in the Green-book without previous consultation with them. They have no intention of entering into a discussion or criticism of the Dispatches. The Italian Government have explained that the publication was made in exceptional circumstances.
§ MR. DALZIEL
asked whether, in view of the fact that these exceptional circumstances had been the subject of a Debate in the Italian Chamber, it was possible to have the full text of the Dispatch.
