HC Deb 01 February 1960 vol 616 cc87-8W
63. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what further representation has been made to the Ethiopian Government about attacks by Ethiopian frontier guards on Somali herdsmen grazing their cattle in the Haud and reserved areas.

Mr. R. Allan

We have claimed compensation from the Ethiopian Government and reserved our rights in respect of the incidents at Haabo Humeyd and Lanquairta. No reply has yet been received. We are not claiming compensa- tion over the incidents near Awareh since here the Protectorate Somalis were resisting the Ethiopian security forces in the exercise of their general responsibility for the maintenance of public order. We have proposed a joint AngloEthiopian inquiry into all these incidents.
