HC Deb 28 July 1937 vol 326 c3082
48. Mr. Foot

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to the recent speech of the First Lord of the Admiralty to the effect that the time had come to let by-gones be by-gones and to seek again to restore with Italy the happy relations which had long existed between that country and ourselves; and whether this utterance represents the policy of His Majesty's Government?

The Prime Minister

I have had the opportunity of reading a Press report of the speech in question. I do not find anything in it which is not in accordance with the policy of His Majesty's Government, namely, to cultivate the most friendly relations with all foreign Governments?

Mr. Foot

Is it now the intention of His Majesty's Government to condone Italian aggression in Abyssinia?

Captain McEwen

Is there any time limit to these Liberal vendettas?
