HC Deb 15 July 1924 vol 176 cc215-6
Mr. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN by Private Notice

asked the Deputy-Leader of the House whether he can communicate to the House the nature of the reply sent by His Majesty's Government to the League of Nations on the subject of the Treaty of Mutual Guarantee, and whether a copy of the reply will be presented to the House.


It is hardly possible to give a fair and an adequate account of the reply within the limits of an answer to a question. The text will be laid before the House as soon as possible.


When the text is laid, will the right hon. Gentleman also lay any communications that may have passed with, or any expressions of opinion received from, the Dominions on this subject?


Since receiving notice of the question, I have not had time to go into that aspect of the matter, but personally I see no objection to taking the course suggested.
