§ 6. Mr. DICKIE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any statement to make on the conscription for military service in Africa of English youths born in Rome of English parents?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir Samuel Hoare)
Under the terms of the relevant Italian legislation none but Italian subjects are liable to conscription for military service.
§ Mr. DICKIE
In view of the fact that this report has been very widely circulated, has the Secretary of State for foreign Affairs any means of bringing to the notice of newspaper proprietors the great disservice that they do to international friendship by circulating such an unfounded report?
§ Sir S. HOARE
I certainly hope that my hon. Friend's question and my answer will be given publicity in the Press.
