HC Deb 09 November 1937 vol 328 c1567
21. Mr. Mander

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he has been in communication with any of the Dominions with reference to the former German colonies; and if he has any reason to suppose that any of them would be prepared to consider retrocession to Germany?

Marquess of Hartington

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As to the second part, I have no information other than what has appeared in the Press. But the general attitude of the Dominion Governments in this matter is, I think, well known.

Mr. Mander

Would it be true to say that the Dominions have not the slightest intention of handing over their own colonies, but have no objection to anybody else doing so if they so desire?
