HC Deb 14 June 1920 vol 130 cc876-7
59. Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

asked the Prime Minister whether, in the event of the texts of all the agreements, conventions, and treaties, as well as of the procès-verbaux of the Peace Conference concerning French policy since the Armistice being submitted to the French Chamber Committee on Foreign Affairs, steps will be taken to afford to this House equivalent information in respect of British policy?


I have no knowledge of any intention on the part of the French Government to make further communications of this kind to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the French Chamber, but should they do so, and documents so communicated become public, the hon. and gallant Member may rest assured that I shall see that the House of Commons is kept as well informed as the French Chamber.

Lieut.-Colonel MURRAY

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that M. Millerand has given to the French Foreign Affairs Committee extracts from the procèsverbal of the Supreme Council as to Middle East Policy, and that it has been published in the French newspapers; and will the right hon. Gentleman see that this House is similarly informed?


I am not sure that M. Millerand has communicated to the French Chamber anything which I have not already communicated to the House of Commons. If the hon. and gallant Gentleman refers to Mosul, I have already communicated to the House of Commons all these facts, on two separate occasions.
