HC Deb 05 July 1939 vol 349 cc1304-5W
Mr. Sorensen

asked the Prime Minister whether he intends at an early appropriate occasion to announce the desire of His Majesty's Government for an international conference to deal with urgent political and economic problems; whether, in view of sustained international tension, he will take the initiative in proposing such a conference; and whether he will take further steps to impress this need of a conference on the German Government and people?

Mr. Butler

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the hon. and learned Member for Kingswinford (Mr. A. Henderson) on 12th June, to which I have nothing to add.

Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister whether the British Government were consulted with regard to, and have fully associated themselves with, the representations made on Saturday by the French Government to Germany with regard to Danzig?

Mr. Butler

His Majesty's Government were not previously consulted in this particular matter, though they have been kept fully informed by the French Government. The attitude of His Majesty's Government has been made clear in recent statements and there is no divergence of view between the two Governments.
