HC Deb 14 September 1909 vol 10 cc1929-30
Mr. ARTHUR HENDERSON (for Mr. Ramsay Macdonald)

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Spanish Government recently joined with our own in advising the Sultan of Morocco to avoid inhuman punishments by way of reprisals upon those who had revolted against his authority; and whether, in view of what is now happening at Barcelona by way of punishing trade unionists and political reformers, the Government proposes to make any representations to Spain?

Mr. H. J. TENNANT (Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade)

My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply. The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative and to the second in the negative.
