§ Mr. CLYNES
(by Private Notice) asked the Prime Minister whether he can make any statement with respect to the negotiations on the subject of disarmament at the Preparatory Commission at Geneva; and whether he can give an assurance that the British representatives are not being hampered by rigid instructions calculated to impair the usefulness of the Commission?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)
I think there would be little advantage in making a statement at this stage, particularly since fairly full reports of the proceedings have appeared in the Press. I can assure the right hon. Gentleman that the British representative has been in constant communication with the Government at home, and the suggestions he has made to us have, I need not say; had the greatest 348 weight with us. In fact, it is true to state that concessions on important points have mostly come from the British side.
