HC Deb 31 July 1924 vol 176 cc2247-8
Viscount CURZON (by Private Notice)

asked the Prime Minister whether a Conference took place this morning between the Government and the British signatories of the Irish Treaty; whether any statement can be made as to the subjects under discussion, and whether any decisions were taken?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. J. Ramsay MacDonald)

Some difficulty having arisen in connection with the interpretation of Clause 12 of the Irish Agreement, I thought it advisable to inform the leaders of parties and signatories of the Treaty still in either House of Parliament and ask their counsel. No decisions were taken.
