HC Deb 06 December 1911 vol 32 c1400

asked the Prime Minister if the fact that there is no secret arrangement of any sort or kind which has not been disclosed is applicable to treaties which exist between this country and Powers other than France?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

As has been stated, there were no secret engagements with France other than those that have now been published, and there are no secret engagements with any foreign Government that entail upon us any obligation to render military or naval assistance to any other Power. They are none of them of recent date.
