20. Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of British engagements to France, the French treaties of alliance with Russia, Rumania, Poland, and Yugoslavia are still in force?

Mr. Butler

The hon. Member, no doubt, has in mind the Franco-Soviet Treaty of mutual assistance of 2nd May, 1935, the Franco-Polish Treaty of mutual guarantee of 16th October, 1925, the Franco-Rumanian Treaty of friendship of 10th June, 1926, and the Franco-Yugoslav Treaty of friendly understanding of nth November, 1927. So far as His Majesty's Government are aware, these treaties are all still in force.

Mr. Mander

Mr. Butler
