Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment. – in the House of Commons on 28th November 1922.
Alert me about debates like this
(by Private Jot ire) asked the Prime Minister whether the French occupancy of the Ruhr Valley is imminent; and, if so, whether such occupancy will receive the support of His Majesty's Government, moral or military?
I have no information which would justify me in saying that the occupation of the Ruhr is imminent, and obviously I cannot answer such a hypothetical question.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that rumours are already current in the Press that such occupancy is imminent?
I dare say. I have seen rumours of a great many things in the Press, but I can assure the hon. Member that no step of any kind in that direction has as yet been taken.
I suppose there is no possible doubt that if such steps were to be taken, His Majesty's Government would know of them before they were taken?
