The Week in Parliament Our Parliamentary Correspondent writes : It

has been quite an important week in Parliament, with the debates on Broadcasting, the Midwives' Bill, mal- nutrition and Colonial affairs, but the interest of Members has been centred on the international situation. There is a general feeling that Herr Hitler is now determined to force the pace and that the moment that the Olympic games are over there will be another demonstration of his contempt for treaties. One result of Herr Greiser's remarkable behaviour at Geneva has been that there is virtually now no pm-German party in the Commons. Some members, indeed, are anxious that an effort should be made to induce the League Powers to withdraw their teams from the Olympic Games as the one protest that would really have some effect on the German Govern- ment, since they ebuld not hide the rebuff from the German people.
