§ 47. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Prime Minister whether the proposal has been considered for a year's cessation of all warship building and construction of artillery and other weapons and war-like equipment by international agreement, concurrently with the remission of inter-allied debt and reparation payments; and whether any decision has been come to on behalf of His Majesty's Government?
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
Will this matter be considered at the forthcoming meeting of Ministers in view of its immense importance, and would not this solve one of the difficulties between France and Germany?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
In reply to the latter part of the supplementary question, I am afraid that it would not, but every consideration will be given to proposals of this and a similar character that may be made to us.
§ Mr. W. J. BROWN
On a point of Order. I raise it at this stage, because it relates to a question which I put down to the Prime Minister four or five days ago in regard to the Douglas Pennant case.
