HC Deb 26 May 1924 vol 174 c22
31. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Prime Minister, in view of the fact that the Dutch fortifications on the Scheldt, which were erected prior to the War, proved an obstacle to the efficient help we could render Belgium in fulfilment of our treaty obligations, whether in any future negotiations he will raise the question of the passage of armed forces through narrow fortified waters, as in the Scheldt and the entrances to the Baltic, being allowed when authorised by the League of Nations?


The suggestion of the hon. and gallant Member raises many complicated and controversial questions, but, should an opportunity arise, the point will be borne in mind.
