HC Deb 08 December 1931 vol 260 c1691
45. Mr. MANDER

asked the Prime Minister if he will consider the advisability of requesting the Committee of Imperial Defence to state what increase in the armaments of this country will be necessary, in view of the uncertainty of the pooled security of the League of Nations being realised as disclosed by recent events in Manchuria?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)

I see no reason to take the action suggested by my hon. Friend.


But does not the right hon. Gentleman think it desirable to get ready for the next war, in view of what is happening in Manchuria?
