§ 68. Lieut.-Commander Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any statement to make regarding negotiations for an Anglo-Italian Mediterranean pact?
§ Mr. Eden
The text of the Agreement recently reached with Italy has been made available in the form of a White Paper (Command 5348). I hope to have an opportunity of dealing with the substance of the Agreement later this afternoon. Perhaps the hon. and gallant Member will be good enough to wait till then.
§ Mr. Bellenger
Has the attention of the right hon. Gentleman been called to the statement made by the Duce that the event of a Soviet form of Government occurring in Spain, would alter the status quo in the Mediterranean, and bow would that affect this pact?
§ Lieut.-Commander Fletcher
May I ask whether, in the course of that statement, the right hon. Gentleman will deal specifically with the question of the Balearic Islands?
