§ 45. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Prime Minister whether a copy of the recent Speyer agreement, in reference to the condition of affairs in the Palatinate, which was signed by a representative of Great Britain, will be laid upon the Table of the House?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Ponsonby)
The results reached by the special commission were embodied, in the first place, in a declaration which was published in the London Press of the 19th February last, and, in the second place, in a memorandum addressed by the Commission to the chief representative of the Rhineland High Commission in the Palatinate. This memorandum, which was signed by the three commissioners, could only be laid with the consent of the French and Belgian Governments and its nature hardly seems to warrant publication.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Will the hon. Gentleman ask for that permission? Is there any reason why we should not have this agreement?
