§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)
In order to provide opportunity for Parliamentary consideration in ordinary cases, it is still the practice of His Majesty's Government to lay treaty engagements for 21 Parliamentary days before ratification in all cases when the continuance of the Parliamentary Session makes this course practicable. When it does not, or when considerations of urgency require ratification without this preliminary, action would be taken accordingly, and Parliament would be notified as soon as may be afterwards.
§ Mr. THORNE
Is it asking too much to suggest that the Prime Minister should have all these treaties and obligations printed as a White Paper?
§ Mr. JOHN WILMOT
Does what the Prime Minister has just said apply to the recent Anglo-German Naval Agreement?
