HC Deb 14 February 1934 vol 285 cc1905-6
4. Captain FULLER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will give an assurance that no disarmament convention will be signed unless Russia is a party to it?


The efforts of His Majesty's Government have been and will continue to be directed towards obtaining agreement amongst all the Powers participating in the Disarmament Conference, to all of whom they have, accordingly, communicated their recent memorandum on disarmament.

Captain FULLER

Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind the precarious position in which India will be placed if the convention does not include Russia?


The hon. and gallant Gentleman may be assured that we always bear all relevant matters in mind.
