M. Laval Hard Pressed FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT PARIS, DEC. 27 The debate on the policy followed by M. Laval in connexion with the Italo- Abyssinian war began in the Chamber of Deputies this afternoon. The atmosphere inside and outside the Chamber was one of unusual excitement. Not only were the galleries of the Chamber crowded to suffocation, but the neighbouring streets were encumbered with motor-cars and filled with groups of people whom the police kept moving with some difficulty. Police cordons were thrown across the principal approaches as the tide of excite- ment rose. It was known from the beginning that the debate would not finish to-day, but would be adjourned this evening until to-morrow.

Duce’s Speech Of Defiance FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ROME, DEC. 18 Inaugturating to-day the third of the townships created on the reclaimed Pontine Marshes, Signor Mussolini told the labourers and country-folk of Pontinia that Italy would persist in her Abvssinian policy until she issued victorious. Addressed as it was mainly to r ustic hearers, the speech was expressed in simple terms, but its political import was none the less obviously directed to a wider audience. It was at once interpreted by several of the invited guests as forecasting if not a total rejection at least a demand for the radical modificdtion of the Anglo- French proposals.

Hard Thinking In Paris IROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDEN-T PARIS, DEC. 20 For Press and public alike yesterday’s debate in the House of Commons has proved of absorbing interest. Not a word of the unusually full reports published here escapes a keenly critical examination. On one thing there is general agreement, accompanied by resentment or regret according to belief in its truth. It is that the main line of the British Government’s defence was French reiuctance to honour the pledge of mutual assistance contained in Paragraph 3, Article X\Vl., of the Covenant. It would be hard to say wvhich of the two main speeches attracts greater attention. For while Sir Samuel Hoare’s declaration throws a greater light on the motives which inspired him to agree to M. Laval’s proposals, Mr. Baldwin’s utter- ance is taken to reveal the trend of future British policy.

M. Laval’s Victory Once again M. LAVAL has won a remarkable victory in the French Chamber, though this time by a narrower margin than in any of the other crises which have threatened his Ministry. His speech in reply to his critics on Saturday, the second day of the debate, was a great achievement, undoubtedly turning in his favour the tide of opinion which had been running heavily against him. There were several other notable speeches in the course of a very frank debate. On the whole the result should be to improve the outlook for cooperation by the two countries in the maintenance of peace by collective security. M. LAVAL’S opening speech on Friday explaining the origin of the Paris peace proposals, which he admitted were now dead, had been coldly received.

A flaming crucible is to be placed near each war monument throughout the country.
