asked the First Lord of the Treasury, If his attention has been called to the report of a Treaty just concluded between Switzerland and the United States of America for settling by arbitration any differences which may hereafter arise between these two countries; and, whether Her Majesty's Government will begin negotiations with the United States and with European Governments with a view to concluding with these Countries Treaties similar to that just made by the United States and Switzerland?
We have no information of the Treaty to which my hon. Friend has referred.
The right hon. Gentleman has not replied to the second part of my Question.
We are not prepared to do anything of the sort.
