§ Mr. Driberg
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that the Spanish Fascist Governor of Algeciras 973W paid a ceremonial visit to Gibraltar on 11th August, at the invitation of the Governor and Commander-in-Chief, and that British troops were obliged to show him the respect customarily accorded to honoured guests; and if he will instruct the military authorities concerned that the offering of such courtesies to any representative of General Franco's regime is undesirable.
§ Mr. Lawson
I have no information. The provision of guards of honour for foreign generals and for distinguished personages is governed by King's Regulations, paragraph 961.
