HC Deb 29 July 1937 vol 326 c3356W
Mr. Noel-Baker

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give the House an assurance that he will agree to no proposals which may be made to the Assembly of the League of Nations the effect of which would be to call in question the right of the Emperor Haile Sélassie to nominate delegates to the League of Nations; and whether he will resist any proposal that would involve any explicit or implied recognition of the invading Italian forces now engaged in military operations in Abyssinia?

Viscount Cranborne

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my right hon. Friend to the hon. Member for Dundee (Mr. Foot) on this subject yesterday, to which I have nothing to add.
