§ 10. Mr. Arthur Henderson
asked the Prime Minister whether the policy of His Majesty's Government to secure an agreement between Great Britain, France, Germany, and Italy presupposes that any such agreement will be contracted within the framework of the League of Nations?
§ The Prime Minister (Mr. Chamberlain)
His Majesty's Government have never stated their policy in the terms suggested by the hon. Member, but they are of course bound by Article 20 of the Covenant of the League of Nations not to enter into any engagements inconsistent with the terms of the Covenant.
§ 12. Mr. A. Henderson
asked the Prime Minister whether the Four-Power pact, signed in Rome on 15th July, 1933, by Great Britain, France, Germany, and Italy to secure, within the framework of 1506 the League of Nations, their collaboration in Europe for 10 years, is still in operation?
§ The Prime Minister
The agreement of understanding and co-operation between France, Germany and Italy and the United Kingdom, usually known as the Four-Power pact, was not ratified by all the signatories to it, and did not come into force.
