HC Deb 16 July 1919 vol 118 cc382-3
Viscount CURZON

(by Private Notice) asked the Prime Minister whether, as indicated in the Press this morning, it is expected that Marshal Foch will be present in London on Saturday in connection with the Peace celebrations?


I am very glad to say that we have received an intimation that there is a probability of Marshal Foch accepting the very cordial invitation which was given to him to come.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Has Marshal Joffre been invited as well?


We leave it to the French to send their own representatives, but Marshal Foch was commander not only of the Frenck Armies but also of ours, and, therefore, we sent him the invitation.
