HC Deb 18 July 1935 vol 304 c1228
68. Mr. MANDER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government are prepared to give the same assurance to the League of Nations as that given by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for West Birmingham (Sir A. Chamberlain) in 1925, that there would be no question of the British Government joining with Italy to put pressure on Abyssinia to surrender any of her rights as a member of the League of Nations or to grant concessions on her territory that the Emperor believed to be injurious to his people?


His Majesty's Government in endeavouring to further an amicable settlement of the Italo-Ethiopian dispute have had, and will continue to have, full regard for the rights and obligations of States members of the League of Nations.


Will the right hon. Gentleman be good enough to answer the question?


If the hon. Member will study the answer, he will find that I have replied.
