HC Deb 30 March 1925 vol 182 cc933-4
40. Colonel DAY

asked the Prime Minister the approximate date on which it is proposed to withdraw the British forces from Cologne?


No, Sir. I am not yet in a position to name any date.


Does the right hon. Gentleman not think the position is becoming very invidious when week after week we fail to carry out our obligations and give no reason for doing so?


I do not agree with the hon. and gallant Member's statement of fact.

59. Mr. MORRIS

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when the Government will be in a position to announce the defaults on the part of Germany in respect of which the evacuation of Cologne has been delayed?


I have nothing to add to the reply given by the Prime Minister to the hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme on the 19th March. But as I realise how much interest is taken in this question by hon. Members in all parts of the House, I will give the assurance that as soon as I have any information to impart I will at once communicate it to the House.
