HC Deb 18 June 1937 vol 325 c726W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that General Franco offered to make arrangements for the reception of Basque women, children, and infirm persons from Bilbao in a neutral zone under the auspices of the Geneva Red Cross; and whether any steps were taken to verify this offer before arrangements were made to receive the Basque children in this country?

Viscount Cranborne

I would refer the hon. Member to the statement on this subject which I made in the House on 16th June in reply to a question put by the hon. and gallant Member for Bournemouth (Sir H. Croft), to which I have nothing to add.
