HC Deb 01 March 1944 vol 397 cc1434-5W
Mr. Hammersley

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give any information regarding the projected oil pipe line across Saudi Arabia to the Mediterranean; whether the pipe line involves concessions in Palestine; and what is the expected Mediterranean terminus of the pipe line.

Mr. Eden

The reports which I have received from His Majesty's Ambassador at Washington indicate that consideration of this project is still in a tentative stage. In the circumstances I have nothing at present to add to the reply which I gave to my hon. and gallant Friend, the Member for Hornsey (Captain Gammans) on 9th February.
