the British reply
to Herr Hitler's speech?
Demand from Herr Hitler that he should publish the whole of the reply.
Here is the summary if it.
Herr Hitler rejected all the suggestions for peace until he had overwhelmed Poland, as he had previously overthrown Czechoslovakia. Peace conditions cannot be acceptable which begin by condoning aggressions.
The proposals in the German Chancellor's speech are vague and uncertain and contain no suggestions for righting the wrongs done to Czechoslovakia and to Poland.
Even if Herr Hitler's proposals were more closely defined and contained suggestions to right these wrongs, it would still be necessary to ask by what practical means the German Government intend to convince the world that aggression will cease and that pledges will be kept.
Past experience has shown that no reliance can be placed upon the promises of the present German Government. Accordingly, acts - not words alone - must be forthcoming before we, the British people, and France, our gallant and trusted Ally, would be justified in ceasing to wage war to the utmost of our strength. Only when world confidence is restored will it be possible to find - as we would wish to do with the aid of all who show goodwill - solutions of those questions which disturb the world, which stand in the way of disarmament, retard the restoration of trade and prevent the improvement of the well-being of the peoples.
There is thus a primary condition to be satisfied. Only the German Government can fulfil it. If they will not, there can as yet be no new or better world order of the kind for which all Nations yearn.
The issue is therefore plain. Either the German Government must give convincing proof of the sincerity of their desire for peace by definite acts and by the provision of effective guarantees of their intentions to fulfil their undertakings, or we must persevere in our duty to the end.
It is for Germany to make her choice.
