HC Deb 15 July 1930 vol 241 c1091
24. Captain P. MACDONALD

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether the negotiations with the Irish Free State in respect of Irish lights have yet been concluded; and, if not, whether he can say what is the present position?


Negotiations on this matter are still proceeding. I am afraid that it is not possible to indicate when they are likely to be concluded.

Major ROSS

Can the right hon. Gentleman give an assurance that the interests of Northern Ireland will be protected in any arrangement that is come to?


I will give an assurance that everybody's interests will be safeguarded.
