HC Deb 21 January 1937 vol 319 c349
64. Mr. A. Henderson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government are aware of the campaign of anti-Czechoslovak propaganda being carried on in the German Press; and whether he will make a statement?

The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Viscount Cranborne)

His Majesty's Government have not failed to observe that a number of articles have recently appeared in German newspapers containing attacks on Czechoslovakia. The maintenance of good neighbourly relations between the two countries is naturally the desire of His Majesty's Government, and I am glad to have this opportunity of making this clear.

Mr. Henderson

Will the Noble Lord send a copy of that answer to Dr. Goebbels?

Viscount Cranborne

I think my reply will come to his notice in any case.

Mr. Gallacher

If aggression actually takes place against Czechoslovakia, shall we get the usual formula about isolating the conflict?
