Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Vyvyan Adams:

asked the Prime Minister whether His Majesty's Government have recently made any representations to the Italian Government concerning the treatment of German and other minorities in the South Tyrol and other parts of Italy?

Mr. Adams:

May I ask my hon. Friend whether the treatment of these minorities is noticeably better than that of the Sudeten-Deutsche in Czechoslovakia?

Can the Minister give us any reason why the Germans are not carrying on intensive propaganda in this particular place, as they are in others?

Mr. V. Adams:

asked the Prime Minister whether His Majesty's Government have recently made any representations to the Polish Government concerning the treatment of German and other minorities in Poland?

Mr. Adams:

Is not the principle involved the same as that of the Sudeten-Deutsche in Czechoslovakia?
