HC Deb 09 November 1933 vol 281 cc347-8W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether he can now say if the claims against the Spanish Government on account of those British subjects who have suffered losses from disturbances in Spain will be settled at an early date?


Frequent representations have been made to the Spanish Government by His Majesty's Ambassador at Madrid, and no opportunity has been lost of reminding the Spanish Government that His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom consider these claims to be legitimate and well-founded, and that they have no intention of abandoning them. I regret, however, to state that, so far, these representations have not been met with a satisfactory reply. My hon. and gallant Friend may rest assured that His Majesty's Government will not fail to continue to press these claims on the attention of the Spanish Government.
