HC Deb 21 March 1927 vol 204 cc15-6
27. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is as yet taking any steps and, if so, what to get any pipe line constructed by the Anglo-Persian Oil Company from Khanikin, or by the inter national oil combine from Mosul, to debouch on the Mediterranean at Haifa instead of at Alexandretta; and has the Admiralty yet been consulted in the matter?


The point is obviously one which will be borne in mind if and when the companies concerned are in a position to consider the construction of a pipe line to the Mediterranean, and I am keeping in touch with the Admiralty on the matter.
