HC Deb 08 November 1937 vol 328 c1414
68. Colonel Wedgwood

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the German and Italian Governments are pressing by propaganda for the cession of compensatory African Colonies on the West coast to Germany; and whether he can give an assurance that no British territory will be transferred to Germany in any case without the clear consent of the native population?

The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Ormsby-Gore)

I have nothing to add to the statements that have already been made on this subject.

Colonel Wedgwood

In view of the pro-German propaganda in the "Times," will the right hon. Gentleman make it clear that that propaganda in the "Times" has not the support of His Majesty's Government?
