HC Deb 16 March 1938 vol 333 c423W
Lieut.-Commander Fletcher

asked the Prime Minister whether he has received notification of the intention of the Italian Government to grant independence to the province of Gojam, which is recognised by the Abyssinian declaration of 1925 as a British sphere of influence?

Mr. Butler

I am unaware of any such intention on the part of the Italian Government, or of any Abyssinian declaration of 1925 such as that referred to by the hon. and gallant Member.
