§ Miss Wilkinson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any reply has yet been received from General Franco to the representations made regarding the bombing of civilians in towns behind the fighting lines?
§ Mr. McGovern
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will adopt the system of convoy for all British ships carrying legitimate cargoes to Spanish Government territory in order to protect the lives of British seamen?
No, Sir, not at present. It is hoped that the measures which are now being taken for the protection of shipping will prove sufficient.
