HC Deb 27 April 1914 vol 61 c1307

asked how many nations have already ratified the Conventions at The Hague in connection with which the Second Peace Conference (Conventions) Bill has been introduced into this House; how the expenses incurred by parties summoned to the inter national tribunal will be reimbursed; and what machinery will be set in motion to compel the attendance of such parties should they show reluctance to respond to the orders of the Court?


I will circulate the lists of countries in answer to the first part of the question with the Votes, as they are lengthy. As regards the second part of the question this appears to be a matter for consideration when a concrete case arises. As to the third part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to Clause 1 of the Second Peace Conference (Conventions) Bill.—[See Written Answers this Date.]
