Mr. M. MacDonald:
I have received no communication from the Government of the Union of South Africa on these matters. But Mr. Pirow has now returned to London, and will be having talks with Ministers here before he leaves at the end of the week. He will, no doubt, inform us of the subjects of his discussions in Berlin and Rome.
In view of the public concern which has followed the publication of Mr. Pirow's statement yesterday that Europe was drifting towards war, and that in the spring there might be a very serious international crisis, will His Majesty's Government consult with Mr. Pirow as to the substance of that statement with a view to a public statement being made at an early date?
