§ 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?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
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.
