§ 6. Major-General Sir ALFRED KNOX
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in order to make the League of Nations an effective instrument for peace by attracting non-member nations to join the League, he will propose at the League meeting in September the abandonment of all coercive sections of the Covenant?
§ Sir A. KNOX
Has not the experience of the last few months proved conclusively that a League of Nations which does not contain all the great Powers is helpless as an instrument of peace, and is not the only way to get these Powers to come back to the League to abolish all coercive sanctions?
§ Mr. T. WILLIAMS
Would it not be just as easy to ensure perfect administration of the law in this country if we abolished the Army and the police force?
Mr. VYVYAN ADAMS
What would be the use of attracting new members to an entirely impotent institution?
8. Miss RATHBONE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will give an assurance that no fundamental changes in the Covenant of the League will be made or finally assented to by His Majesty's Government until Parliament has had an opportunity of discussing the changes in question?
