"The Embassy of the Valencia Authorities in London have recently issued a press communique containing wild allegations about recent landing of Italian soldiers in Spain.
"This is not the first time that the Embassy in question issue through the press similar fantastic tales.
"It is not for me to express any opinion upon the use that the representatives of Valencia make of the diplomatic status accorded to them.
"But I wish to declare that not a single Italian volunteer has left my country for Spain since the ban was agreed upon by this Committee.''
