I stated on 27th September in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend that the German Consulate-General in Tangier had been closed and its entire staff withdrawn. All the German agents resident in Tangier have since been expelled, but there remain some seven German agents in Spanish Morocco for whose expulsion we are continuing to press.

I should also mention that in accordance with the terms of the agreement, the Japanese Military Attaché was withdrawn from Tangier.
