HC Deb 03 June 1942 vol 380 cc642-3
3. Sir Patrick Hannon

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether official information has reached him that the Vichy Government have given permission for the training of German sailors on French warships; and whether any protest has been made by the Allied Powers?

Mr. Eden

The answer to the first part of the Question is No, Sir. The second part, therefore, does not arise.

Sir P. Hannon

If any indication comes to my right hon. Friend that steps are being taken by the Vichy Government to facilitate the training of German sailors, will an appropriate protest be made?

Mr. Eden

My right hon. Friend will appreciate that that question is hypothetical.
