asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is satisfied with the reply received from the Spanish Government respecting the two bomb outrages committed against the chapel and house of the British Protestant minister at Infesta; whether representations have been made in respect of the opening of Protestant schools under British auspices; and what publications sent, to Spain from this country, have been censored and not permitted to be delivered.

No reply has yet been received to the protests made on 28th May by His Majesty's Chargé d'Affairs at Madrid against the bomb outrages at Infesta. The question is being pursued. I am not aware of any project for the opening of British Protestant schools in Spain. Should a request be made for official support for such a scheme it will be considered on its merits. No recent cases of the seizure or censoring of publications sent from this country to Spain have been brought to my notice.
