asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether His Majesty's Government were made aware of the negotiations for the 50-year oil concession between the Emperor of Ethiopia and the Sinclair Oil Corporation before the conclusion of the agreement.

Mr. Shinwell

I would refer the Noble Member to the reply I gave yesterday to my hon. Friend the Member for Middles-brough East (Mr. A. Edwards) on this matter.
