§ 2. Mr. Mander
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the breach of the Kellogg Pact by Germany in the case of her attack on Poland, Norway and Denmark, and in view of the expressed willingness of the United States Government to enter into consultation with co-signatories of the pact in such circumstances, he will consider the advisability of suggesting that a conference of signatories should be called, either by the British or American Governments, with a view to consulting together as to what action can be taken to refrain from assisting the aggressor by financial, economic, trade, or diplomatic action?
§ Mr. Butler
As stated in my reply to the hon. Member on 10th April, it is not for His Majesty's Government to suggest to the United States Government what attitude to adopt in regard to the violation of a treaty to which the United States are a party. His Majesty's Government are not at the present juncture prepared to take the initiative in convening a conference of the signatories of the Pact of Paris.
§ Mr. Mander
In view of the expressed willingness of the United States Government to consult with the other co-signatories, would it not be only a natural and reasonable thing to have a talk with them and see what they think about it?
