asked the Prime Minister whether he can make a statement concerning the present situation in the Memel district of Lithuania?

Conditions in the Memel-land have not appreciably changed since my reply to the hon. Member for Wolver-hampton, East (Mr. Mander) on 1st February, but the present situation is being closely watched.

Has the right hon. Gentleman seen the statement of the leader of the Germans in the Memel territory, that the time has now come when they must return to the Reich?

Yes, Sir, I have seen that statement, and I have said that the situation is being closely watched.
