§ 29. Mr. M. Philips Price
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations have come from the new Persian Government asking for assistance in plans for the economic reconstruction of the country; and if he will make a statement.
None, Sir. But His Majesty's Government have already been able to give Persia some technical assistance in accordance with her wishes and my right hon. Friend is anxious to help the Persian Government in any way they may desire in their efforts to develop the country and raise the standard of life of the Persian people.
I am sure my hon. Friend is not asking me to suggest other than that this is a matter for the Government concerned.
