HC Deb 13 July 1922 vol 156 cc1603-4

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House do now adjourn."— [.Colonel Leslie Wilson.]

Lieut.-Commander KEN WORTHY

May I ask the Colonial Secretary if he has any information about the Hague Conference? Also, when a statement will be made on the course of events at The Hague, and whether Papers will be laid?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Churchill)

I quite understand the interest and tender solicitude with which the hon. and gallant Gentleman has been following the recent course of events at the Hague—

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

So have a million unemployed.


—but I regret to say I am not in a position either to offer him the encouragement of hope, or to send him to bed with the comfortable certainty of complete despair.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

It is a pity you cannot give the unemployed a little help.

Adjourned accordingly at Three Minutes after Eleven o'Clock.
