§ 1. Colonel DAY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the sufferings of Mrs. Dorothie Bodley, a British subject, during the time she was detained by the Italian authorities at Cagliari, Sardinia; whether he has received a full Report from the British Consul at Cagliari of this incident; whether any representations have been made by the Foreign Office to the Italian authorities; and if he is in a position to make a full statement on the subject?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Godfrey Locker-Lampson)
Yes, Sir. Mrs. Bodley has made to me a statement of her experiences in Sardinia, and her account is confirmed by a report which I have received from His Majesty's Ambassador at Rome who has been in communication with the British Consul at Cagliari. In the circumstances, I am instructing His Majesty's Ambassador at Rome to bring the facts of the case to the notice of the Italian Government with a view to inquiry being made into the incident.
§ Colonel DAY
Will the hon. Gentleman say whether the report that he has received from the Ambassador relating to this lady will be published?
