HC Deb 08 March 1911 vol 22 c1364W

asked the Prime Minister if his attention has been called to the desire expressed by the President of the United States of America for a treaty with this country under which all disputes, of whatever nature, between the two nations would be referred to arbitration; and whether he can take any steps to respond to that desire and to further that object?


His Majesty's Ambassador at Washington has reported that the United States Government contemplate proposing some such treaty, and a reply has been sent, that any proposals they may make will, of course, meet with the most sympathetic consideration.
