HC Deb 15 May 1919 vol 115 c1759
55. Major-General Sir NEWTON MOORE

asked the Prime Minister whether the mandate charters to be given to the Commonwealth of Australia for the administration of the South Pacific Islands will be issued immediately Peace is signed; and, if not, how long a period will elapse before the Commonwealth Government receives these charters?


I regret that it is not possible at this stage to make any statement on this subject, but my hon. Friend may be sure that there will be no unnecessary delay.
