HC Deb 21 April 1920 vol 128 cc389-90
52. Mr. LYLE

asked the Prime Minister if he will inform the House of the progress and results of the self-determination of various peoples included in the former German Empire as stipulated by the Peace Treaty?


The only plébiscite which has yet ben held under the Treaty of Versailles is that of Schleswig. There the result of the vote in the Northern Plébiscite Zone was in favour of Denmark, and that in the Southern Plebiscite Zone was in favour of Germany. The International Commission charged with administering the vote will presumably shortly submit their Report to the Ambassadors' Conference, by whom the final decision as to the disposal of this area will be taken. Arrangements for holding the other plebiscites necessitated by the Treaty are making progress.
