HC Deb 02 August 1935 vol 304 cc2990-1
23. Mr. COCKS

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether he will make another attempt to ascertain from the German Government whether they will sign an Eastern Pact of Non-Agression; and whether he will inform the German Government that further delay on this matter will cause the British Government to intimate their desire to withdraw from the Anglo-German Naval Agreement and their obligations to Germany under the Locarno Agreement?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which my right hon. Friend gave to his question on 31st July and to my right hon. Friend's speech in the course of the Debate in this House yesterday.


Is it not time that the German Government were made to realise that beneath the velvet glove of British diplomacy there is an iron gauntlet?
