HC Deb 08 March 1938 vol 332 cc1730-1W
Lieut.-Commander Fletcher

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to the communication of the Italian Foreign Minister to the German Press concerning Italian and German troops fighting side by side in Spain; and, as this communication is not in accordance with declarations made by the representatives of those countries on the Nonintervention Committee and with their acceptance of the British formula for the withdrawal of Foreign troops from Spain, whether he will cause representations to be made to the Italian and German Governments accordingly?

Mr. Butler

As the hon. Member will be aware from the answer which I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for North Lambeth (Mr. G. Strauss), my at2tention has been drawn to the article in question, but His Majesty's Government are not prepared to make representations to the Governments concerned about it.
