HC Deb 05 March 1925 vol 181 c676W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Foreign 'Office has prepared a memorandum favouring the conclusion of a security pact between Britain, Germany, France and Belgium; and, if so, whether he is prepared to present the memorandum to Parliament?


I hope that the hon. Member will excuse me from giving any answer—affirmative or negative—to this question. It is not in the public interest that I should give information as to what memoranda are prepared in the Foreign Office for my consideration or use in confidential communications with my colleagues here or with the other Governments of the Empire.
