§ 53. Mr. MANDER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will state the grounds upon which the British Government has been exercising pressure on Abyssinia not to take her dispute with Italy to the League of Nations?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir John Simon)
His Majesty's Government have not been exercising any such pressure.
§ Mr. THORNE
When the Foreign Secretary meets Mussolini will he be good enough to ask him what his object is in regard to Abyssinia?
§ Mr. MANDER
Do I understand from the answer that the right hon. Gentleman has no objection whatever to Abyssinia bringing her case before the Council of the League of Nations?
