HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 c1507
11. Mr. A. Henderson

asked the Prime Minister whether he will state the extent of the obligations of His Majesty's Government to assist France in the event of any attack on or invasion of French territory?

The Prime Minister

The obligations of this country to France, apart from any that may result from the Covenant of the League of Nations, are those of the Treaty of Locarno of 1925 as reaffirmed in Section III of the arrangements drawn up in London on 19th March, 1936.

Mr. Henderson

Has His Majesty's Government considered the position that is likely to arise in the event of France being attacked as a result of carrying out her treaty obligations to Czechoslovakia?
