§ 2. Sir K. WOOD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can now make a further statement as to the outcome of his negotiations on naval armaments with the French and Italian Governments?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
During my recent visit to Geneva I was able informally to refer to this question in conversations with my French and Italian colleagues, but I am not in a position to make any further statement at the present time.
I do not think that that time has arrived. I am not yet without hope that we are going to reach a settlement.
§ Colonel GRETTON
Can the right hon. Gentleman now inform us what was the position of the British Government in these negotiations? Were we a principal party, or were the British Government endeavouring to act as an honest broker?
That might be a question open to debate, and the right hon. and gallant Member must use his own judgment in the matter.
