Morning: A small group of ministers meets in Lloyd George’s office. They are not willing to go to war to support France in all circumstances or for a mere violation of Belgian territory but would go to war if there was a wholesale German invasion of Belgium.
Lloyd George and Harcourt go to Asquith and tell him they represent eight to ten cabinet colleagues who hold this view.
