§ Mr. DILLON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will lay upon the Table the text of the Secret 1557 Treaty of 1904 between France and Spain on the affairs of Morocco, also the texts of any other agreements between France and Spain referring to Morocco known to His Majesty's Government, together with the communications which passed between the Governments of France and Spain and His Majesty's Government in reference to these treaties?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir Edward Grey)
I have already promised to lay before Parliament the Convention between France and Spain of 1904 with regard to Morocco, and I hope to do so shortly. I will also lay any agreements between France and Spain with regard to Morocco which the Governments of those two countries make public. I am not prepared to lay any further Papers at present.
§ Mr. DILLON
asked whether the British Government has been asked to support the French Goevrnment in any negotiations with the Government of Spain having for their object to induce Spain to surrender any rights in Morocco guaranteed to her under the Secret Treaty of 1904, or any other treaty with the British Government; and, if so, what has been the reply of the British Government?
§ Sir E. GREY
I can make no statement about actual or prospective negotiations between Franco and Spain. Whatever part His Majesty's Government may take in them will have due regard to the Agreements of 1904, in which all three countries are concerned.
