HC Deb 19 June 1930 vol 240 cc598-9W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the negotiations with the Vatican with regard to Malta have been broken off or, if not, what the position is with regard to these and also regarding the constitutional position in Malta?


In reply to the first part of the question, I can add nothing to the information contained in the White Paper recently issued. In reply to the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer (of which I am sending him a copy) given on 17th June by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, to a question by my right hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel Wedgwood).
