§ 4. Lieut. - Commander FLETCHER
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he now contemplates setting on foot negotiations for the settlement, of all outstanding differences between this country and the Irish Free State?
Mr. H. MacDONALD
I am keeping in mind the desirability of a settlement of outstanding differences between this country and the Irish Free State, but am not in a position to add anything to the answer which I gave to a similar question by the hon. and gallant Member on 25th February.
The answer which I have given on two occasions expresses my recognition of the desirability of a settlement of these differences, but I cannot add further to the rest of the answer I have given.
§ Mr. ATTLEE
Can anything happen if this is merely going on in the right hon. Gentleman's mind? Is he not going to do something?
