§ Captain EDEN
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any 1345W negotiations are now in progress with the United States of America for the negotiation of an arbitration treaty in place of that which has now lapsed?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
As the hon. Member will be aware, the general question of international arbitration is1346W receiving careful consideration by His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom in consultation with His Majesty's Governments in the Dominions, but I am not prepared at the moment to make any statement with special reference to the proposal for an arbitration treaty with the United States of America.
