Afternoon: Grey tells
Posted on July 31st, 1914 by admin
Afternoon: Grey tells Paul Cambon the cabinet is unable to guarantee Britain will intervene in support of France at the present time. It could not pledge Parliament in advance. Further issues such as the preservation of the neutrality of Belgium might change attitudes.
Cambon says Britain has pledged its support and asks Grey to again put the matter to the cabinet. Cambon knows that Grey himself is very supportive of France.
