HC Deb 25 March 1936 vol 310 c1242W
Lieut.-Commander FLETCHER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the present position concerning his representations to the Italian Government relative to the bombing of a British Red Cross unit in Abyssinia?


I am still awaiting the comments of the officer in charge of the ambulance upon the summary of the Italian note which was referred to in the reply given to the right hon. Gentleman, the Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme, on 16th March. I have, however, in the meantime received the full text of the Italian note and, in view of the information so far in my possession, I have already felt bound to inform the Italian Government that His Majesty's Government are quite unable to regard the Italian answer to the representations which have been made to them as in any way satisfactory.
