HC Deb 04 October 1944 vol 403 cc907-8
7. Mr. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether in view, of the fact that the Anglo-Ethiopian Agreement, 1942, has terminated, the Ethiopian railway which, for the period of the agreement only, was placed under British military control has now been restored to Ethiopian control; and whether British troops have vacated the reserved areas which they occupied under the 1942 Agreement.

Mr. Eden

In view of the negotiations for a fresh agreement now pending, the Ethiopian Government have agreed to maintain the status quo in both respects for a further period.
