§ Captain P. MACDONALD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any settlement has yet been arrived at of the conditions of service of British officials on the Iraq railway; and, if so, what is the nature of the settlement?
§ Dr. SHIELS
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; the second part of the question does not therefore arise. As I informed the House last Wednesday in my reply to the hon. Member for Melton (Mr. Everard), the matter is at present under negotiation with the Iraq Government.
