HC Deb 26 April 1944 vol 399 cc785-6W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has any statement to make regarding the negotiations with the U.S.A. Government on their plan to operate a pipeline from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean.

Mr. Eden

I believe that the United States Government are still discussing this project with the companies concerned and have so far reached no decision in the matter. In the circumstances I have no statement to make at present.
