HC Deb 29 June 1925 vol 185 cc2049-50W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what corre- spondence has taken place between His Majesty's Government and the self-governing Dominions on the subject of the Pact of Security; and whether such correspondence will be published?


My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs explained the position as regards the Dominions in the course of the Debate on 24th June. His Majesty's Government had not contemplated publishing any correspondence at this stage beyond that contained in the White Paper, the purport of which had previously been communicated to the Dominions by telegraph. The White Paper is, I understand, to be republishedin extenso in Canada as soon as copies arrive, and in the meantime the German Note and the French reply have been laid before the Canadian Parliament. I have not yet learned what view other Dominions take regarding publication of any of the correspondence.
