§ 24. Mr. Francis Noel-Baker
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to what extent His Majesty's Government have been in touch, either through His Majesty's Embassy in Pans or other diplomatic channels, with the Spanish Republican Government since that Government was re-formed.
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
While welcoming that reply, I would ask my right hon. Friend whether he does not agree that the Spanish Republican Government form one of the principal factors which must be taken into account in attempting to find a democratic solution in Spain; also, is he aware 1153 that the composition of the new Government is such that they would be likely to welcome the help and advice of my right hon. Friend?
§ Major Guy Lloyd
Would the right hon. Gentleman tell the House who, in fact, are the Spanish Republican Government?
§ Major Legge-Bourke
Who initiated these unofficial talks—the Spanish Republican Government or this Government?
