HC Deb 07 May 1934 vol 289 cc740-1
Sir HERBERT SAMUEL (by Private Notice)

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received any communication from the Belgian Embassy with regard to the late King of the Belgians, and whether he has any statement to make on the matter?


Yes, Sir. My attention has been rightly drawn by the Belgian Government to a statement alleged to have been made by Colonel G. Seton Hutchison to the effect that the late King of the Belgians was murdered. I feel sure that the whole House will join with me in regretting the pain and indignation that has been caused throughout Belgium by this unfounded and irresponsible statement.
