HC Deb 08 July 1936 vol 314 c1175
19. Mr. V. ADAMS

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, as His Majesty's Government have in the Italo-Ethiopian dispute pursued a policy not in complete accord with that of the Dominion most closely concerned by Italy's breaches of treaty and unprovoked aggression, he will give an undertaking that in any future discussion with regard to the return of the former German colonies, he will relate his policy closely to the desires of the Union of South Africa?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement made in the House on 12th May by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Dominions in answer to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for West Birkenhead (Lieut.-Colonel Sandeman Allen), to which I have nothing to add.


Does not that mean that the Union is resolutely inflexible on the matter?


My hon. Friend had better read the answer.


Is the Noble Lord aware of the large amount of propaganda that is taking place in the area mentioned in the question; and what steps are being taken to combat it?
