asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether a satisfactory arrangement has now been reached with Persia on the questions raised by the Persian Finance Minister in regard to the administration of the port of Abadan; and whether the arrangement covers the right of British warships to lie at Abadan without the permission of the Persian Government?
