Great Britain and France.

Oral Answers to Questions — Genoa Conference. – in the House of Commons on 10th May 1922.

Alert me about debates like this

The following question stood on the Paper in the name of Lieut.-Commander KEN WORTHY:

53. To ask the Lord Privy Seal whether the notes of the conversations at Genoa between the Prime Minister and Monsieur Barthou on Saturday last on the return of the latter from Paris have yet reached him; and whether, in view of the various accounts of these conversations which have appeared in the Press, these notes can be laid upon the Table?

Before asking this question, may I say that it was put on the Paper before the recent publication of M. Barthou's letter and M. Barthou's reply? In any case, I do not think it affects the question.

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the latter part, I do not think that I can usefully add to the answers which I gave yesterday, when I dealt with this subject fully.

Have we not so far had statements of what did not occur at the Conference, and is it not very desirable that we should have an agreed statement of what did occur?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

No, Sir.
