§ 7. Mr. WILMOT
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether an agreement or understanding between the Governments of the United Kingdom, Italy and France, or between the administrations of British Somaliland, French and Italian Somaliland, and the Italian colony of Eritrea, concerning police action to be taken in case of necessity for maintaining law and order in the portions of Abyssinian territory adjacent to these colonial administrations, has been registered with the League of Nations; and will he state its terms?
§ Sir J. SIMON
There is no agreement or understanding between the Governments or the Colonial administrations mentioned for any action of the kind suggested for the maintenance of law and order in those portions of Abyssinian territory adjacent to French, Italian or British Colonial possessions.
§ Mr. MORGAN JONES
Are we to take it that the report in the public Press that the British Minister at Addis Ababa is engaged in pressing advice upon the Abyssinian authorities in the direction of conceding the Italian demands is not justified?
