49. Lieut.-Colonel Sir F. HALL
asked the Prime Minister if any pledge of any kind was given by him to the American representatives at the Peace Conference, that, in consideration of the question of Irish self-government not being dealt with at the Conference, the Government would as soon as possible after the signing of the Peace Treaty settle the Irish question on the basis of Home rule?
Sir F. HALL
Are we to understand that no pledge of any description was given with regard to Ireland to the President of the United States?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The answer I have given is a most definite reply to the supplementary as well as to the original question.
