HC Deb 11 April 1928 vol 162 c1185
13. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government is aware that the United States Navy Appropriation Act for the financial year 1923–24 requests the President to negotiate with the British Empire, France, Italy, and Japan with a view to limiting the construction of all types of war-like aircraft, submarines, and surface vessels; whether any proposals for a Conference have yet been made; and whether His Majesty's Government welcomes the proposal of both branches of the American Parliament?


It does not appear that any such request to the President was included in the Act as finally passed. No proposals for such a Conference have been received. The remainder of the question, therefore, does not arise.
