§ 15. Rear-Admiral BEAMISH
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what commitments the Government has inherited and which it has to fulfil in relation to the present condition of the world?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
A review of the foreign commitments, which His Majesty's Government have inherited, involves an examination of the treaties by which His Majesty's Government are bound in all quarters of the world, and I could not undertake to make a satisfactory statement within the compass of a Parliamentary answer.
§ Rear-Admiral BEAMISH
Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether these commitments are acceptable, and whether the Government is proud to inherit them?
