HC Deb 01 March 1938 vol 332 cc913-4
57. Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the passage in the German Chancellor's speech to the Reichstag on 20th February expressing a wish for the return of the former German Colonies, he will give an assurance that no consideration will be given to any possible solution of this problem except as part of a general settlement?

The Prime Minister

I have nothing to add to previous statements on this subject made on behalf of His Majesty's Government.

Mr. Mander

In view of the fact that the Government have always said that they would consider the question of the Colonies only in association with a general settlement, can I assume that that is still the position, and that there is no change?

The Prime Minister

I said that I have nothing to add.
