HC Deb 11 December 1935 vol 307 cc921-2W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will give an assurance that no settlement of the Italo-Abyssinian dispute will be approved by His Majesty's Government that, without the consent of the Abyssinian Government, violates the territorial integrity or commercial independence of Abyssinia?


I would refer the hon. Member to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary on 5th December and confirmed by my right hon. Friend the Minister for League of Nations Affairs in the Debate yesterday, to the effect that the policy of His Majesty's Government at the present time is that "any proposals that might emerge from these or other discussions must be acceptable to the three parties to the dispute—the League, Italy and Abyssinia."
