§ Mr. Turton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will give details of the information which he has handed to the French Government of the means of transport used and the assistance given to Rashid Ali during his journey from Germany to Saudi Arabia.
As my right hon. Friend said in answer to a Question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Preston (Squadron Leader Segal) on 24th October Rashid Ali is reported to have travelled from Austria to Brussels, Paris, Marseilles, from there by sea to Beirut and on by land to Saudi Arabia. His Majesty's Government have as yet no definite information regarding the means of transport used by Rashid Ali, nor do they yet know what assistance, if any, he was given.
