§ 1. Sir JOHN POWER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the convention regarding the organisation of the Tangier zone permits the French and Spanish Governments to use the port of Tangier for the passage of troops proceeding to their respective zones; and whether he is satisfied that this provision has involved no inconsistency with the neutrality of the Tangier zone?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir Samuel Hoare)
The answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative.
§ 2. Sir J. POWER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can state the proportion of British, French, Spanish and Italian subjects employed in the international administration of Tangier; and whether he is satisfied that this is a fair distribution of posts among the nationals of the great Powers who have subscribed to the statutory régime?
§ Sir S. HOARE
I do not feel that I can add anything to the reply given on 5th June to a question asked on behalf of my hon. Friend the Member for East Dorset (Mr. Hall-Caine).
§ 10. Mr. HALL-CAINE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is now in a position to make any further statement with regard to the possibility of obtaining a satisfactory revision of the Tangier Convention which expires in 1936?
§ Commander SOUTHBY (Lord of the Treasury)
I have been asked to reply. My right hon. Friend is unable to add to the statement which was made on the 29th May in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Wimbledon (Sir J. Power).
