HC Deb 05 May 1937 vol 323 c1139
11. Mr. Vyvyan Adams

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will, as the representative of Great Britain, give an assurance that he will agree to no proposal at Geneva to deprive Ethiopia of her seat on the Assembly of the League of Nations?

Mr. Eden

My hon. Friend will, I am sure, understand that it is not possible for me to make a pronouncement on an issue which has not been raised and which, if it were to be raised, would be a matter to be considered by the League as a whole.

Major-General Sir Alfred Knox

Is it not the right hon. Gentleman's duty to pursue peace instead of perpetuating an antiquated blood feud?

Mr. V. Adams

Should not we at least resist condoning this aggression?
