§ Mr. ALDEN (by Private Notice)
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the advisability of moving a formal Resolution on Liberty Day, 4th July, expressing the sympathy and good will of the House of Commons with the Government and people of the United States of America; the terms of such a Resolution to be cabled to both Congress and the Senate?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The Government feel as strongly as my hon. Friend the importance of the object which he has in 1729 view. I do not, however, think that it is necessary to adopt the course suggested, as both the House of Commons and the Government have had many opportunities of expressing in the strongest way the feeling of sympathy and good will of the British people to the people of the United States.
