§ 11. Mr. A. Henderson
asked the Prime Minister to what extent His Majesty's Government are interested in the maintenance of the status quo in the International Zone at Tangier, in view of the fact that His Majesty's Government were parties to the Algeciras Conference of 1906?
§ Mr. Butler
The United Kingdom is a party to the Algeciras Act of 1906 and to the Paris Convention of 18th December, 1923, as modified by the subsequent Protocol of 25th July, 1928, organising the Statute of the Tangier Zone. His Majesty's Government consider the maintenance of the present regime of the Tangier Zone as a matter of great importance.
