HC Deb 21 July 1931 vol 255 c1269W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can make a statement as to the attitude of His Majesty's Government to the negotiations between the French and German Governments with regard to the guarantees required from Germany as to the abandonment of the proposed customs union with Austria and the suspension of the German naval programme so far as the new 10,000-ton cruisers are concerned?


As the House is aware, a conference is now meeting in London for the purpose of examining the financial situation in Germany and the means of remedying it. My right hon. Friend is not at present in a position to make any further statement.
