HC Deb 21 March 1938 vol 333 c852W
Mr. D. Somerville

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the persecution now being carried on against the Jewish race by various European Governments, he will consider instituting inquiries among all the Powers interested in their fair treatment to see whether better provision can be made for the welfare of this people?

Mr. Butler

While deploring the intolerance with which many elements of the population are treated in certain countries on account of their religious beliefs or their political opinions, I have no reason to think that inter-governmental action such as suggested by the hon. Member would benefit the particular Jewish populations which he has in mind.
