§ 48. Mr. FREEMAN
asked the Prime Minister if his attention has been called to a statement by M. Briand on a proposed United States of Europe; whether such a suggestion would have the approval of His Majesty's Government; and if so, what steps he proposes to take in the matter?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Dalton)
I have been asked to reply. The attention of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs has been drawn to certain statements in the Press purporting to give M. Briand's views on the proposal, but he has had no communication on the subject from the French Government. The latter parts of the question do not, therefore, arise.
