§ 42. Mr. Thorne
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can give any information in connection with the hoisting of the flag of General Franco at Gibraltar on Empire Day; and when was the last time that a similar flag was hoisted at Gibraltar?
Mr. M. MacDonald
The flag in question was flown by General Franco's subagent over his office at Gibraltar on Empire Day. I am not aware that this flag has been flown in Gibraltar on any previous occasion.
§ Mr. Thorne
Would the right hon. Gentleman like me to send him the date and the time—14th April, 1931?
If the hon. Member thinks he has information which I have not, I shall be glad to have it.
