HC Deb 30 July 1941 vol 373 cc1408-9
2. Mr. Price

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that there is an increase of German experts and so-called tourists in Iran; and whether he will make representation to the Government of Iran on this matter?

Mr. Eden

I have already drawn the Iranian Government's serious attention to the danger, in their own interests, of continuing to permit an excessively large number of Germans to reside in their country. I trust that the Iranian Government will not fail to heed this warning and to take the necessary measures to deal at once with the situation.

Mr. Mander

Is our Russian Ally taking similar steps in this matter?

Mr. Eden

We have been working in this in close co-operation.
