asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Spanish Government has yet replied to the request of His Majesty's Government that a delegation of British officers should be sent to investigate the complaints of ill-treatment made by British subjects serving in the Spanish Foreign Legion against their officers and against the Spanish military authorities generally; and, if not, what further action he proposes to take in the matter, in view of the specific allegations of brutal treatment that have been made?

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. His Majesty's Government are in further communication with the Spanish Government, and hope very shortly to arrive at a satisfactory settlement of the question.
