HC Deb 16 May 1938 vol 336 cc15-6
21. Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the failure of alternative schemes of settlement, an effort will be made to reorganise the Assyrian settlement of the Khabur River, in order to place it on a self-supporting basis?

Mr. Butler

I would remind the hon. Member that in September last the League Council adopted proposals for the re- organisation of the Khabur settlement on a fully self-supporting basis. The work of reorganisation is now being carried out.
