HC Deb 19 April 1937 vol 322 cc1415-6
8. Mr. A. Henderson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government will oppose at the forthcoming meeting of the League Council any proposal to give de jure recognition to the Italian conquest of Abyssinia?

Mr. Eden

No agenda for the forthcoming meeting of the Council has yet been issued. I am not prepared to make a statement on a question which is at the moment, therefore, hypothetical.

Mr. Henderson

May the House take it that there has been no change in the policy of the Government as declared by the Foreign Secretary on the point?

Mr. Eden

Yes, Sir.
