HC Deb 06 July 1926 vol 197 c1879
60. Mr. BUXTON

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government of Abyssinia has been consulted during the recent negotiations between the British and Italian Governments regarding Abyssinian territory?


I would refer the right hon. Gentleman to the reply given to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull on the 30th of June.

Captain BENN

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that that reply gave no explicit answer to the question whether the Abyssinian Government was willing voluntarily to concede these British and Italian claims?


The Abyssinian Government has been acquainted with these negotiations from the start.

Captain BENN

Has the hon. Gentleman ever heard of Morocco?
