HC Deb 30 July 1937 vol 326 c3524W
Mr. Cocks

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the provisions of the Treaty of Utrecht regarding the fortification of territory adjacent to Gibraltar are still regarded as valid, both by His Majesty's Government and by the government of Spain?

Viscount Cranborne

The provision of the Treaty of Utrecht to which the hon. Member presumably refers raises certain difficult legal considerations about which I am not at present prepared to make a statement.
