HC Deb 28 February 1938 vol 332 c749W
Mr. D. Somerville

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the uncertainty which has been caused by the activities of Japan as regards capital-ship construction he will press for an early conference of the principal Naval Powers to reconsider capital-ship limitations?

The Prime Minister

I regret that I have at present nothing to add to the reply given by my right hon. Friend, the late Foreign Secretary, on 16th February. It has been arranged that the consultation referred to in the second part of the reply made to the hon. Member for Chester (Sir C. Cayzer) on 14th February will take place very shortly.
