HC Deb 18 February 1920 vol 125 c892
Sir E. CARSON (by private notice)

asked the Leader of the House whether there is any truth in the statements appearing in the public Press to the effect that a harsh and uncompromising reply had been originally drafted to President Wilson's dispatch, but that this reply had been subsequently changed as the result of representations made by Lord Grey, the Noble Lord the Member for Hitchin (Lord Robert Cecil), and the Chancellor of the Exchequer?


There is not a shadow of foundation for any such suggestion, and, indeed, I think it hardly necessary to say that there is not a single representative of any of the Allied Powers at the Conference who does not recognise the supreme importance of a good understanding with the Government and the people of the United States.
