§ 12. Mr. WATERSON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can make a statement as to the situation in Albania?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
His Majesty's Government understand that negotiations are now proceeding between the Italian Government and the Albanian Government at Tirana in regard to the future relations between Albania and Italy. The Italian Prime Minister has meanwhile stated that Italy does not desire a mandate over Albania. It is to be hoped therefore that the negotiations now proceeding will lead to a settlement satisfactory to both parties, and one which will facilitate the task of the Supreme Council in providing for the future frontiers and status of the Albanian State.
§ Mr. RAFFAN
Have we now a representative in Albania, and is the hon. Gentleman in communication with him?
§ Mr. HARMSWORTH
I shall be glad if the hon. and gallant Gentleman will give me notice of that question.
In view of the promise made a few weeks ago that a representative was going to Albania, can the hon. Gentleman say how soon we shall be represented there?
