HC Deb 01 December 1920 vol 135 cc1234-5
60. Mr. SUGDEN

asked the Prime Minister if the representatives of Parliament attending the League of Nations Conference have powers to conclude agreements with the other representatives without reporting the proposals first to both Houses of Parliament, or will the whole of the agreements concluded be subject to confirmation by the contracting Powers represented there?

65. Mr. ACLAND

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether instructions have been issued by His Majesty's Government to the principal British representatives on the assembly of the League of Nations as to how their votes are to be cast on each question which appears on the agenda of the assembly; if not, whether they will be given such instructions before the several questions are put to the vote; and whether instructions will be issued after a conference between the Cabinet and the British representatives?


As I have already stated in answer to a previous question, the representatives at the League of Nations Conference must have a certain latitude, but they will, of course, communicate with the Government in matters of consequence.
