§ 11. Sir A. Knox
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information regarding the bombing of Pamplona a few days ago by Spanish republican aeroplanes; and whether the aeroplanes passed over French territory?
§ Sir A. Knox
Has not Salamanca said officially that 10 French planes crossed the frontier and bombed Pamplona., which is far from the frontier, and returned by the same route?
§ 16. Major Rayner
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government, in pursuance of their objective of strengthening and broadening the basis of the collective system, will take steps at Geneva to see that representations, made on behalf of 834 that part of the Spanish people whose government has not yet been accorded recognition by the League of Nations, receive fair consideration?
§ 20. Mr. Noel-Baker
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to an official communiqué issued by General Franco's headquarters claiming that the recent exchange of missions is not a recognition of belligerency, but that the conclusion of this agreement implies recognition of sovereignty; and whether he can make a statement?
§ 27. Mr. W. Roberts
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what information has been received as to dangers to British merchant shipping off the coast of Valencia that has made it necessary to advise British ships to avoid that area?
§ Mr. Eden
British ships have not been advised to avoid the area referred to by the hon. Member; but:, as the result of an Insurgent broadcast on 7th November to the effect that mining operations between Cape San Antonio and Cape Tortosa would be intensified, masters of British vessels were advised to exercise special care in the approaches to ports between those points.
§ Miss Wilkinson
Are we to understand from that reply that anything Salamanca chooses to radio is immediately accepted as the fact by His Majesty's Government, and that in that way ports can, in fact, be closed to British shipping?
§ Mr. W. Roberts
Can the Foreign Secretary tell the House whether he has any corroborative evidence from the British Navy or other sources as to the existence of such mines?
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
Will the right hon. Gentleman ask the Admiralty to give instructions to the Navy to verify these reports as soon as possible?
§ Sir Archibald Sinclair
Is it quite clear that full protection is being given to British ships carrying food up to the three-mile limit?
