HC Deb 30 March 1960 vol 620 cc129-30W
51. Mr. Albu

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what reply he has received from the Ethiopian Government to his claim for compensation in respect of the attacks by Ethiopian frontier guards on Somali tribesmen grazing their cattle in the Haud and to his proposal for a joint Anglo-Ethiopian inquiry into these incidents.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

The Ethiopian Government have told us that since, in their view, the incidents at Haabo Humeyd and Lanquairta, in respect of which we claimed compensation, resulted from the earlier incidents in the Awareh area when Protectorate tribesmen attacked Ethiopians, they cannot accept our claim. No reply has been received to our proposal for a joint Anglo-Ethiopian inquiry.
