HC Deb 25 November 1925 vol 188 cc1387-8W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether he can give an assurance to this House that His Majesty's Government will, at the forthcoming meeting of the council of the League of Nations, support the immediate initiation of preparatory work for the disarmament conference proposed by the Sixth Assembly of the League?


Yes, Sir. The British Delegation at the last assembly joined in voting a resolution directing that such preparatory work should be undertaken. In pursuance of this resolu- tion a committee of the council, on which Lord Cecil of Chelwood will be the British representative, will meet on the 3rd of December in order to draw up definite proposals.
