HC Deb 25 October 1939 vol 352 c1440W
Mr. T. Williams

asked the Prime Minister whether His Majesty's Government was consulted by the Government of Iraq with regard to the admission to Iraq of the former Mufti of Jerusalem?

Mr. Butler

No, Sir. There was no opportunity for consultation since I understand that the Mufti entered Iraq without having obtained permission to do so from the competent Iraqi authorities and that he crossed the frontier undetected.
