§ Mr. Peter Freeman
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, in view of the fact that the part of Ethiopia in which Brigadier Thomas F. Given was killed is the Reserved Area of Ethiopia under British military administration, whether he will give instructions for the withdrawal of British troops from the area in consequence of this fatality and of the desire of the inhabitants of the Reserved Area for the termination of British military administration.
§ Mr. Lyttelton
No. The implication contained in the last part of the Question is not in accord with the reports which I have received.
