HC Deb 04 April 1938 vol 334 cc19-20
33. Mr. Emrys-Evans

asked the Prime Minister whether he will publish a White Paper, similar to Command Paper 5143 laid before Parliament on 7th April, 1936, showing the course of diplomatic discussions between this country and Germany from March, 1936, to the end of March, 1938?

The Prime Minister

I will bear in mind my hon. Friend's proposal, but I am doubtful as to the value of such a publication at the present time.

Mr. Emrys-Evans

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the British Government's position is continually going by default?

Mr. A. V. Alexander

As there was a publication issued following the conversations between Lord Londonderry and Herr Hitler is it not essential that we should have a publication dealing with the conversations between the Foreign Secretary and Herr Hitler?

34. Mr. Emrys-Evans

asked the Prime Minister whether he can make any statement with regard to the conversations between His Majesty's Ambassador in Berlin and the German Chancellor on 4th March last?

The Prime Minister

I have nothing that I can add to the statement I made in reply to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for Nuneaton (Lieut.-Commander Fletcher) on 7th March when I informed him that the German Chan- cellor received His Majesty's Ambassador on 3rd March for a general conversation upon subjects of interest to both countries.
