§ 45. Mr. ANEURIN BEVAN
asked the Prime Minister whether the Dominion Governments have expressed their opinion of the Imperial Foreign policy 19 now being pursued by His Majesty's Government; and, if so, whether he can tell the House what that opinion is?
The SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr. J. H. Thomas)
I have been asked to reply. Every effort is made to keep His Majesty's Governments in the Dominions in touch with the policy and action of His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom in respect of foreign affairs. It is not for me to voice the opinions of Dominion Governments, but I can at least say that I have had no indication that any of them dissents from the general foreign policy which we are pursuing.
My hon. Friend ought to make himself acquainted with the Imperial Conference decisions. Those decisions are clear and definite, that no Government can involve another Government in a war, but every opportunity is taken to inform the Dominions of every step; and, so far as I am concerned, I say without hesitation that no Dominion has expressed any dissent of any sort or kind from the foreign policy of the Government.
