gives great stimulus to the International Effort toward disarmament but resolutions he added can not produce work along practical hues like Aris tide Briand in behalf of France lord Cushendun defended the franc Obri Tish efforts to reach a naval agree ment disarmament is the predominating question of the present Assembly lord Cushendun said its importance can not be overestimated i appreciate disappointment of Chancellor Mueller of Germany and others at the slow Progress made but i fear Herr Mueller does not appreciate the difficulties facing the preparatory disarmament commission each state has a right to judge for itself the level of armaments Neces sary for its Security hence it is impossible to apply any common denominator to All countries nevertheless great amount of disarmament already has occurred even without common action the British Navy personnel already is More than 40000 less than in 1924 we also scrapped More than 206 War vessels totalling Over 2000000 tons the same proportionate reduction applies to our arsenals and nary yards1 done the same if Jefty e army and nary rift set Rice 1 eel we already have fulfilled our Oil teak tons meantime new arms been especially in the Aerial and chemical Fields that present new difficulties you can count guns men and ships but you cannot Esti mate the possibilities of these new arms which Are also imperative for commercial use and development nevertheless i can give the full est Assurance of England desire to live up to its disarmament obligations it is demonstrated by our Long Effort to reach agreement with France on the naval aspects of Dis armament progresses Only possible by eliminating difficulties one at a time and when agreement is reached Between two nations it is necessary to see it it is acceptable to the others then often an agreement reached tween two stats is unacceptable to a third that necessitates fresh amendments changes and negotiations despite that we have already agreed on much great Progress has been made and there is no need to despair the new generation especially will be reared in the idea that War is a National disaster and that Only armaments necessary for defense
