HC Deb 12 February 1941 vol 368 c1338
4. Mr. Mander

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can now make a statement about the position in Tangier and the present state of the negotiations?

Mr. Eden

I had hoped to be able to make a statement this week, but I regret I am not yet in a position to do so. Discussions about various technical matters are, however, continuing satisfactorily both in Madrid and in Tangier.

Mr. Mander

Would it not be a good idea to ask General Wavell to call in there?

Mr. Cocks

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether General Franco has gone to seek advice from Mussolini on that point?
