"NOT AFRAID." 1 SIR E. GREY ON WAR I NO SLACKENING IN I ARMAMENTS. No Reduction. I Sir Edward Grey delivered an important speech on armaments and foreign policy to the Manchester Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday night. His chief points were — We are not afraid of theidea of war but we are penetrated by a sense of the waste of war. Only forcible interference—and that might have been a hazardous proceeding—could have prevented the Balkan wars. I The day may come when, if war breaks out between two countries, other countries may rush. to stamp out that war with as I little suspicion of each other's motives as I people who rush to put out a fire. I In the Balkans no single difficulty had I been made .1 greater by British policy. I THE ARMAMENT QUESTION. I The enormous and growing expenditure on I armaments presses on the springs of in<ius- try. That expenditure is not a British but a I European question. Slackening off in armaments by one coun- try does not mean a diminution of expendi- ture in others. If the leading horse n a race slackens and iis thought to be exhausted, the others do not slow down. When we started building Dreadnoughts Dreadnoughts were already in the air, and would soon in any case have been in thF water. The increase in Dreadnoughts abroad goes on without reference to British expenditure. SHOCKED AT THE WASTE. Germany is building under the naval law of many years ago. It could not be saic: that France, Austria, and Italy are build- ing against us. If we cut down our programme it will not affect the building programmes of Europe. British dislike of armaments will find strong expreesion in Parliament. I hope the motive will not be mistaken abroad. We feel the strain leaet, but we are shocked at the waste. In the long run excessive expenditure on armaments might sink the ship of European prosperity and civilisation.
