HC Deb 22 March 1937 vol 321 c2544
22. Captain Ramsay

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the Third International is actively engaged in fomenting strikes, disaffection, and sabotage in Great Britain and France, with the ultimate object of bringing about revolution and civil wars similar to that now being waged in Spain; and will he therefore confer with the French Government with a view to taking common action against this menace?

Mr. Eden

So far as the activities of the Third International in this country are concerned, I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which my Noble Friend gave to a similar question asked by him on r5th February. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.

Captain Ramsay

Will my right hon. Friend make representations to our friends across the Channel to the effect that a so-called ally whose chief preoccupation is to stab one in the back is a greater menace than an open enemy?

Mr. Paling

Do not strikes in this country arise out of the low wages paid?
