HC Deb 03 February 1937 vol 319 c1576
6. Mr. Lambert

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is intended to secure the assent of the German Government to a treaty guaranteeing the integrity and sovereignty of Holland and Belgium?

Mr. Eden

The question of the treaty relations between Germany and her Western neighbours will be a matter for consideration in the course of the negotiations for a new system of security in Western Europe, the arrangements for which are still under discussion.

Mr. Lambert

Will the right hon. Gentleman request the British Ambassador in Berlin to pursue this matter with the German Government?

Mr. Eden

This is, in the first instance, a matter for the Governments concerned.
