HC Deb 08 May 1934 vol 289 c923
68. Mr. MANDER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will consider the advisability of proposing at the next council meeting of the League of Nations that an inquiry shall be held under Article 213 of the Treaty of Versailles as to the present position of German armaments, with a view to establishing the real facts and testing the willingness of Germany to carry out her treaty obligations to give every facility for an investigation?


As the hon. Member is aware, the disarmament negotiations are still proceeding and I am unable to make any statement for the time being.


Does not the hon. Member think it is about time that the German peace bluff was called, and that really her heavy re-armament was exposed to the world?
