HC Deb 03 May 1938 vol 335 cc703-4W
Mr. Parker

asked the Prime Minister whether he proposes to ask the insurgent government in Spain to provide reasonable compensation for the eight British lives lost before and the five lost since the Nyon Agreement as the result of their action through aircraft, mines, or submarines?

Mr. Butler:

His Majesty's Government have already presented a claim for compensation in connection with the eight British lives lost before the Nyon Arrangement when His Majesty's Ship "Hunter" struck a mine. As regards the British lives lost since the Nyon Arrangement, His Majesty's Government have reserved their right to claim full compensation in due course.
