§ 54. Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked the Prime Minister whether he will give both Houses of Parliament opportunities of discussing the proposal made by Lord Derby for a special military alliance between this 1727 country and France before the Government is committed to such a policy; and whether he will postpone the consideration of such an alliance until the Dominions of the Empire and India have been fully consulted and their commitments under such an alliance clearly defined?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The question of entering into a special military alliance with France is not under discussion.
