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.

Uneasiness In Rome FROMf OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ROME, DEC. 19 Official Italian opinion affects to-night to see in the resignation of Sir Samuel Hoare nothing beyond a personal affair. Sir Samuel, one of the customary spokes- men suggests, resigned because he was made the target of sharp criticism, and perhaps because he wanted to faciJitate the work of his Government. Yet his recent statements on the Abyssinian problem are not regarded as cancelled. He was then speaking as a member of the British Cabinet, and as that Cabinet is still in power the Anglo-French proposals, according to the Italian view, must still hold good.
