HC Deb 25 March 1936 vol 310 c1242W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will consider placing on the agenda of the proposed international conference a five-years arms truce proposal with non-aggression pacts all round covering that period in the name of Great Britain?


If the hon. Member will study the White Paper issued on the 19th March, the contents of which His Majesty's Government have already stated that they are prepared to endorse, he will find that it contains proposals for the organisation on a precise and effective basis of the system of collective security and for agreements tending to secure the effective limitation of armaments. It is obviously not possible for His Majesty's Government at the present stage to go into more precise detail.
