§ 22. Major Legge-Bourke
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action he proposes to take in consequence of the rejection by the General Assembly of the United Nations of the proposals for the future of the Italian Colonies recommended by the Political Committee; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mayhew
I have nothing to add to the reply which I gave to my hon. 1244 Friend the Member for Maldon (Mr. Driberg) on 23rd May, which applies equally to all the former Italian Colonies.
§ Major Legge-Bourke
In view of the importance of this question, especially in Tripolitania and, in some degree in the other colonies, will the hon. Gentleman give an assurance that some representation will be made to the United Nations that if they desire Great Britain to administer these territories until September, they are in duty bound to produce some finance to overcome the growing resentment at the status quo?
