HC Deb 20 April 1926 vol 194 cc1019-20
46. Captain GARRO-JONES

asked the Prime Minister what stage of progress has been reached in the negotiations of disarmament proceeding under the auspices of the League of Nations?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Godfrey Locker-Lampson)

I am at a loss to understand to what negotiations the hon. and gallant Member is referring. By decision of the Council of the League in December last, a Preparatory Committee on Disarmament was appointed to prepare the way for an eventual conference on Disarmament. The first meeting of that Committee is fixed for May 18th.
