§ 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.
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?
Mr. LOCKER - LAMPSON
The Abyssinian Government has been acquainted with these negotiations from the start.
