Since the answer on this subject which I gave to the right hon. Gentleman on the 21st April, certain communications have been received from the French Government indicating the lines on which that Government would be prepared to proceed with the proposed negotiations.
§ Mr. GRAHAM
Yes, I have referred to other replies which have so far been received; but I would remind the House that these communications are at the moment confidential.

Could the right hon. Gentleman say what concessions the French Government are prepared to make?
