HC Deb 08 April 1935 vol 300 cc806-7
8. Mr. G. HALL

(for Sir W. JENKINS) asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will take steps to ask the Secretary-General of the League of Nations to summon a special meeting of the Council of the League as early as possible to deal with the situation in Abyssinia?


Although I have not yet received its text, I understand from reports in the Press that the Ethiopian Government have, within the last few days, addressed a further communication to the League of Nations requesting that their differences with Italy be considered at the special session of the Council to be held this month, and that this request is receiving consideration.
