Morning: Bonar Law and Lansdowne, leaders of the Conservative Party

Posted on August 2nd, 1914 by admin

Morning: The Conservative leaders, Bonar Law and Lord Lansdowne, send a letter to Asquith. It says “… it would be fatal to the honour and security of the United Kingdom to hesitate in supporting France and Russia at this juncture; and we offer our unconditional support to the Government in any measures they may consider necessary for this object”.
This Conservative stance does not depend on a violation of Belgian neutrality by Germany as a cause of war.
