HC Deb 01 June 1911 vol 26 c1213

asked the Prime Minister if he would lay upon the Table of the House a translation of the Bill which has recently passed the Reichstag conferring Home Rule upon the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

His Majesty's Government are not yet in possession of the text of the Bill in its latest shape. There will be no objection to laying a translation of it when it has been received.


Does the right hon. Gentleman know whether there is any danger of the grant of Home Rule to these provinces leading to the dismemberment of the German Empire?


Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that no Bill has ever been proposed in the Reichstag granting Home Rule to Alsace and Lorraine, and that no Bill has been passed, and that the answer given is quite inaccurate?
