HC Deb 03 April 1922 vol 152 c1845

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the Treaty of London of 1839 under which the neutrality and inviolability of Belgium was guaranteed by the principal European Powers is still in force, at any rate so far as this country is concerned, or is the integrity of Belgium only guaranteed by France under a new Treaty at the present time?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. So far as His Majesty's Government are aware, the integrity of Belgium is not guaranteed by France under any treaty. The hon. Member is doubtless thinking of the military agreement which has been concluded between the two Powers to meet the eventuality of future aggression by Germany.
