HC Deb 16 June 1925 vol 185 c291
73. Mr. DALTON

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Dominions were consulted concerning the terms of the Anglo-French note to Germany on security; and, if so, whether he will communicate the correspondence to the House?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Amery)

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by the Prime Minister yesterday to my hon. Friend the Member for Devizes. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.

Captain BENN

Does the right hon. Gentleman not remember that the Prime Minister indicated that he might answer as to whether the agreement is so drawn that it requires the assent of the Dominions to it?


That does not follow.


The right hon. Gentleman was also asked whether he would enter into this agreement in view of the direct refusal of the Dominions to confirm it.


The agreement has not yet been completed.


Have they not already expressed their views, and did not the Prime Minister of Canada state that he would have nothing to do with it?
