HC Deb 07 April 1930 vol 237 c1776

I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance, namely: The imminence of an agreement between His Majesty's Government and a foreign Power as to the interpretation to be placed on Article 16 of the Covenant, without any consultation with the Council of the League of Nations, thereby engendering suspicion and endangering good relations with other Powers, and without the assent of this House.

The pleasure of the House not having been signified, Mr. SPEAKER called on those Members who supported the Motion to rise in their places, and, not fewer than 40 Members having accordingly risen—

The Motion stood ever, under Standing Order No. 10, until half-past Seven this evening.
