HC Deb 06 May 1924 vol 173 cc225-6
49. Sir F. HALL

asked the Prime Minister whether any definite understanding has yet been come to between the British and French Governments as to the adoption of a common policy in regard to the action to be taken to ensure the carrying out of the provisions of the Treaty of Versailles and the payment of reparations by Germany; and, if not, what is the present position of the negotiations?


I trust that the Report of the Dawes Committee will result in the re-establishment between all the Governments concerned of a common policy in regard to the payment of reparations. The attitude of His Majesty's Government and of the French Government towards that Report is defined in the notes which the two Governments addressed to the Reparation Commission on the 24th April and the 25th April respectively, and which have been published.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say anything further with regard to the last part of the question? Is there any subsequent information with regard to any negotiations?


I am not able to announce at this moment anything in addition to what I have already said.
