§ 49. Mr. HANNON
asked the Prime Minister whether the allusion to armaments in Western France contained in his recent communication to Monsieur Poincaré referred to long-distance guns said to have been placed at two points on the French coast; whether definite information as to the existence of these guns is in the possession of His Majesty's Government; and whether it is proposed to address any communication to the French Government on the subject?
§ Mr. PONSONBY
The answer to the first part of this question is in the negative. I have no information as to 2538 these alleged guns; the third part of the question does not, therefore, arise.
