"Will the House have a general
idea of what proposals the British
government intends to ask the United
States to discuss?" George Lansbury,
floor leader of the Labor Party, asked
the Prime Minister during the ques-
tion period.
"The agenda drawn up by the com-
mittee of experts preparing for the
world economic conference covers the
field," Mr. MacDonald replied.
Mr. Lansbury persisted:
"This is very important. Will the
Ilouse and the country be given any
idea of the British proposals on the
war debts?"
"It has been stated again and
again," said the Prime Minister, "that
as far as war debts are concerned, we
want an agreement with America
which will enable us to pursue our
European policy."
The Labor leader continued to
press him.
"Surely," he said, "the Commons
and the country are entitled to ask
for a clear statement of the lines of
the policy on war debts."
