§ 52. Sir WILLIAM BYLES
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to the statement of Count Czernin, the Austro-Hungarian foreign secretary, that the Central Empires' proposal for a peace conference still holds good and urging that, without the declaration of a truce, the belligerents should meet and see if an agreement is possible, adding that, as soon as our enemies are ready to negotiate for a peace honourable to them and to us, then nothing stands in the way of negotiations; and whether, to save further bloodshed and suffering, His Majesty's Government will entertain the proposal?
§ Sir W. BYLES
Is it not now evident that you can have peace to-morrow? [An HON. MEMBER: "On German terms!"]
