HC Deb 03 July 1924 vol 175 cc1529-30W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has received a memorial from the Abercarne branch of the League of Nations Union urging His Majesty's Government to approve the principles of the draft Treaty of Mutual Assistance in order to promote a reduction of armaments together with guarantees of security; and will he use his influence to give effect to the principles embodied in the question?


I have received memorials to the effect mentioned from a number of branches of the union. The general object of security and reduction of armaments is well known to be the aim of His Majesty's Government. I hope to be able to state their views on the draft Treaty shortly.
