HC Deb 18 July 1938 vol 338 c1806
Mr. A. Henderson

(by Private Notice) asked the Prime Minister whether he has any statement to snake on the letters which have been recently exchanged between the French Prime Minister and himself?

The Prime Minister

The letters to which the hon. Member refers were of a private character and not intended for publication. I may say, however, that the result of the correspondence is once more to show the close accord which exists between the two Governments on all matters of common concern.

Mr. Maxton

I understand the Prime Minister to say that these were private letters. May we take it that the inspired paragraphs in the newspapers which have indicated what the contents of the letters were, were quite unfounded?

The Prime Minister

Whether or not they are unfounded I cannot say, but they were not inspired by me.

Mr. Garro Jones

Do these letters involve any new commitments on the part of His Majesty's Government?

The Prime Minister

No, Sir.
