HC Deb 15 February 1938 vol 331 cc1724-5W
Mr. Leckie

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the continuing physical cruelties that are being perpetrated on Jews in Rumania, and particularly on Jewish women students as well as men at Bucharest University with the connivance of the authorities; and whether he will make representations to the Rumanian Government on the subject?

Mr. Eden

Yes, Sir. I am aware that brutalities are alleged to have occurred, and His Majesty's Minister in Bucharest recently drew the attention of the President of the Council to them. The Rumanian Government has now resigned, but I will bear the matter in mind.
