§ 19. Sir PERCY HARRIS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has had any reply from the German Chancellor to his last communication containing proposals for the improvement of the international situation; and, if so, whether he can give it to the House?
§ Mr. EDEN
I assume that the communication to the German Chancellor which the hon. Member has in mind is that contained in the despatch to His Majesty's Ambassador at Berlin of 6th May, which was issued as a White Paper (Cmd. 5175). No reply has yet been received to the questions raised in that despatch.
§ Sir P. HARRIS
Can the right hon. Gentleman give any explanation for the considerable delay which has taken place?
