§ Sir R. THOMAS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any agreement has been reached between his Department and the Iraq Government in regard to the disposal of the Iraq railways; and, if so, will he make a statement?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
No, Sir. Negotiations with the Iraq Government are still proceeding and, in the circumstances, I am not yet in a position to make a statement on the subject.
