HC Deb 28 June 1944 vol 401 cc697-8
2. Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the position with regard to the Japanese Consul-General and his staff in Tangier; and whether he is satisfied that their presence is not prejudicial to military operations of the United Nations' Forces.

Mr. Eden

There is not and has never been any Japanese Consulate in Tangier. As I informed the House on 17th May, a member of the staff of the Japanese Embassy at Madrid, who had been residing in Tangier in recent months, was requested by the Spanish Government to leave Tangier for Spain, which he did on 29th May. There are, therefore, no Japanese officials in Tangier and the second part of the Question does not arise.
