HC Deb 01 July 1937 vol 325 c2161W
Lieut.-Commander Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information as to the amount of foreign assistance in men, munitions, and money received, respectively, by the two sides in Spain; and whether there is any sort of equality as between the two sides as regards assistance received?

Viscount Cranborne

I cannot add to the statement made by my right hon. Friend in answer to a question by the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Mr. Riley) on 16th June.

Miss Rathbone

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will cause an inquiry to be made into the nature of the evidence upon which British warships continued for some 10 days to issue a strong warning to merchant ships not to enter Santander harbour, and as to who was responsible for the order to give such warning?

Mr. Shakespeare

My right hon. Friend sees no reason for holding such an inquiry as he is satisfied that the issue of the warning was justified.
