§ 7. Captain PETER MACDONALD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign. Affairs whether it is the intention of the Government to proceed with the negotiations with the Soviet Government on the question of claims and counter-claims during the Parliamentary Recess; and whether he will give an assurance that any agreement which may be arrived at will not be ratified until Parliament has been given an opportunity of considering it?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
The procedure in these negotiations is now under discussion between the two Governments, and I hope to be able to make a definite statement on Monday next. The Protocol of 3rd October, 1929, provides that all agreements resulting from the negotiations shall take the form of a treaty, or treaties. The treaty, or treaties, will be submitted to Parliament before ratification.
