§ 3. Lieut.-Commander Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can now make a statement concerning the recent Anglo-Franco-Belgian conversations; and whether Belgium is now released from all military obligations to this country other than those to which she is committed by the Covenant of the League of Nations?
§ Mr. Eden
Yes, Sir. His Majesty's Government are still bound by the first paragraph of Section III of the Text of Proposals of 19th March, 1936, by which they declared, as regards their obligations to France and Belgium, that nothing that had happened before or since the breach of the Treaty of Locarno could be considered as having freed the signatories of that treaty from any of their obligations or guarantees and that the latter subsisted in their entirety.
