HC Deb 11 March 1936 vol 309 c2126
46. Mr. LEACH

asked the Prime Minister whether he will endeavour to obtain from the Government of the United States of America an assurance that by their interpretation of the Monroe doctrine they will hold themselves bound to intervene to defend Canada, British Guiana, and the Falkland Islands from armed attack by any Power or group of Powers?


No, Sir.


Will the right hon. Gentleman not reconsider his answer in view of the possibly beneficial results that a favourable reply might have on the Government's defence proposals?
