§ 63. Mr. Mander
asked the Prime Minister the nature of the communication which has been received by the League 966 of Nations from the Swiss Government, with regard to the evacuation of Swiss territory in time of war, by the League, and what steps are being taken in consequence thereof.
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Butler)
I understand that no communication of the kind suggested by the hon. Member has been received by the League of Nations from the Swiss Government.
§ Mr. Mander
In view of the difficulties that the Government sometimes have in getting information, may I put the question this way—has the right hon. Gentleman made inquiries of the League on the subject?
§ 65. Sir Smedley Crooke
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of President Roosevelt's letter and the real desire for peace amongst all the peoples of Europe, he will consider the advisability of extending an invitation to Here Hitler and Signor Mussolini to visit London to discuss their various grievances, and so try to remove suspicion from the minds of these European rulers?
§ Mr. Butler
While His Majesty's Government are in general sympathy with the objects stated in my hon. Friend's question, I do not think that at the present moment they would be achieved by the course which he suggests.
§ Sir Smedley Crooke
Is my right hon. Friend aware that the Prime Minister's continued efforts in the cause of peace have the solid backing of the people of the country?
