§ 2. Mr. MANDER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the proposals brought before the Air Committee of the Disarmament Conference in the early part of 1933 for an international aerial police force are still before the Disarmament Conference; and when they were last considered?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir John Simon)
Proposals for an international police force formed part of an amendment submitted by the representative of Spain to the air chapter of the United Kingdom Draft Convention; this amendment, in common with a number of others to various articles of the Draft Convention, is still before the Conference. In reply to the second part of the question, the last occasion on which proposals for an international air police force were specifically under discussion was the 7th March, 1933, at the eighth meeting of the Special Air Committee.
§ Mr. ATTLEE (by Private Notice)
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will inform the House when the Government's Memorandum on Disarmament will be published?
§ Sir J. SIMON
Yes, Sir. The Memorandum on Disarmament will be available for Members in the Vote Office between 6 and 7 o'clock this evening and thus appear in to-morrow morning's newspapers.
§ Mr. ATTLEE
May I ask the Leader of the House whether the House will have an opportunity of discussing the Memorandum?
§ The LORD PRESIDENT of the COUNCIL (Mr. Baldwin)
Perhaps the hon. Gentleman will put that question after he has seen the White Paper.
