HC Deb 29 April 1936 vol 311 c888
6. Major-General Sir ALFRED KNOX

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government will continue to support the Convention regarding the international status of refugees, passed at Geneva on 28th October, 1933?


The position in regard to this Convention has not changed since the date of the reply returned by my Noble Friend to the hon. and gallant Member for Nuneaton (Lieut. - Commander Fletcher) on 30th March, of which I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy, and to which I can add nothing for the present.


Will the right hon. Gentleman use his influence at Geneva to oppose any suggestion of abandonment of the refugees by the League?


My hon. and gallant Friend will appreciate that this Convention covers the problem as a whole and that we have to consider it very carefully.
