§ 1. Mr. COCKS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has ascertained what are the definite conditions upon which Germany is prepared to consider returning to the League; and whether these conditions include any stipulation and, if so, what stipulation, regarding the question of colonies?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir Samuel Hoare)
An inquiry was made some time ago with a view to ascertaining what precise conditions have to be fulfilled in order that Germany may be prepared to consider a return to the League. The German Government have not, however, thought it possible to supplement their views, as stated by my predecessor in his statement in the House on 9th April, and by the German Chancellor in his speech of 21st May.
§ Sir S. HOARE
I have had no official communication about the statement referred to, and I therefore could not venture to make any answer to the hon. Member's question.
