HC Deb 10 February 1937 vol 320 c380
11. Mr. Mander

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the fact that any dispute between Germany and Czechoslovakia is a matter in which we should be closely interested under the Covenant of the League of Nations, he will state why the invitation to inspect military aerodromes offered by the Czechoslovakian Government was not accepted?

Viscount Cranborne

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply on this subject given to the hon. Member for Kingswinford (Mr. A. Henderson) on 27th January, to which I have nothing to add.

Mr. Mander

In view of the fact that that is contrary to what the Noble Lord informed me last week, and that it is clear that we are keenly interested in this matter under the Covenant, will he not reconsider the British refusal to inspect the aerodromes?

Viscount Cranborne

I said that approach was made to us individually. If there were an international approach, it would no doubt be considered internationally.
