§ Mr. ARTHUR HENDERSON
I wish to ask the following question, of which I have given private notice to the right hon. Gentleman the Secretary for Foreign Affairs (Sir E. Grey), whether he can say what action, if any, was taken on behalf of His Majesty's Government to prevent the shooting of Senor Ferrer by the Spanish Government without trial in a civil court?
§ Mr. H. BELLOC
Before the right hon. Gentleman answers that question I wish to ask whether there is any precedent for such a question as that?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
I think that the hon. Member had better wait until he sees whether there is any answer to the question.
§ Mr. HALDANE
Owing to the insufficiency of the notice this question cannot be answered to-day. The Secretary for Foreign Affairs has only received notice about ten minutes ago. If the hon. Member repeats it to-morrow the question will be answered.
