HC Deb 11 April 1928 vol 162 c1208

asked the Prime Minister if, on the 31st of December last, in view of the early meeting of the Allied Conference in Paris, the German Government officially informed the Allied Governments that the German State Secretary was commissioned to lay before the Paris Conference the German reparation proposals and to explain them verbally; whether the German State Secretary was in Paris during the meeting of the Allied Conference: whether he was invited to submit the proposals he was commissioned by his Government to put forward, and, if not, why and did he himself make any suggestion to the other Ministers at the Conference that Dr. Bergemann should be invited to submit the proposals either verbally or in writing?

Mr. BALDWIN (for the Prime Minister)

The hon. Member will find on page 68 of Command Paper 1812 a statement as to the German overture before the Paris Conference, the action taken by the Conference thereon awl the reasons for that action. There is nothing I can add to that statement.
