letter was not found. However, Pethick-Lawrence took part in the
discussion at the House of Commons on the government proposals on
defence: he asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (Neville

programme laid down in the White Paper of 3 March (cited in note

forthcoming budget statement. Questions and answers are reported
in the Official Report, Parliamentary Debates, Fifth Series, vol.
