§ 12. Mr. KING
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is prepared to give the Netherlands Government an assurance that Great Britain will favourably consider any invitation to attend a Conference of the Signatories of 1689 the Berlin and Brussels Acts summoned to consider a provisional settlement of Central African problems?
§ The SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Balfour)
We have never been asked for any such assurance.
§ Mr. SNOWDEN
Is it not a fact that in the early days of the War representations were made by Spain to this Government with regard to this matter, and that this Government refused to listen to that appeal?
