HC Deb 17 February 1944 vol 397 cc349-50
58. Rear-Admiral Sir Murray Sueter

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that a Spanish firm has delivered to representatives of the German command a large consignment of important parts for submarines manufactured under a contract now in operation; and if strong representations will immediately be made to the Spanish Government on this breach of neutrality with a request that this contract be at once terminated.

The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Eden)

As regards the first part of the Question, I have no information to confirm this report. I should be grateful if my hon. and gallant Friend would let me have any evidence in his possession.

Sir M. Sueter

The information was given on the Russian wireless on 6th February.

Mr. Eden

If it was given on the Russian wireless, I now know where to apply for it.
