HC Deb 18 July 1935 vol 304 cc1227-8
67. Mr. MANDER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government will be prepared to consider the separation of the Covenant of the League of Nations from the Treaty of Versailles, with a view of enabling Germany to resume her place in the League of Nations, as indicated in point 1 of Herr Hitler's speech of 1st May?


According to the information in the possession of His Majesty's Government the inclusion of the Covenant in the Treaty of Versailles is not the sole reason for Germany's refusal to resume active membership of the League of Nations.


Would it not be a good opportunity for calling Herr Hitler's bluff, if it is a bluff, on this point?
