HC Deb 12 June 1939 vol 348 c910W
Wing-Commander James

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that printed and signed propaganda against the Spanish Government, with whom we are in friendly relations, is being periodically circulated to Members of Parliament and others, by Spanish refugees who have been permitted to enter this country; and whether, as such activities are not in accordance with the conditions under which they have been admitted and likely to prejudice good international relations, he will take steps in the matter?

Mr. Butler

If my hon. and gallant Friend will send me examples of this propaganda, my Noble Friend will give it his consideration.

Mr. W. Roberts

asked the Prime Minister whether His Majesty's Government has taken or will take advantage of the terms of the Anglo-Italian Agreement in order to ask the Italian Government how much Italian war material has been handed over to General Franco?

Mr. Butler

As was made clear in reply to questions on the 7th June, the terms of the Anglo-Italian Agreement do not give His Majesty's Government an opportunity to make representations about war material which passed out of Italian hands after the end of the civil war.
