§ 7. Mr. Mander
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the position with regard to the negotiations for the removal of all Italian civilians from Abyssinia?
§ Mr. Mander
Cannot the right hon. Gentleman say whether any progress has been made? He indicated on the previous occasion that, if the Italian Government did not send ships, other steps would have to be taken.
§ Mr. Wedgwood
Is it not obvious that if the Italians do not send ships to take their nationals away, they may prefer them to remain there until the end of the war?
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
In view of the great desirability that this evacuation should be rapid and complete in order to promote economic readjustment, will the right hon. Gentleman do everything he can to expedite it?
