§ 62. Mr. AUBREY HERBERT
asked the Prime Minister, seeing that secret diplomacy has been harmful in the past, why he refuses publicity to-day in his proposals with regard to the future of small nations?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I dealt very fully with the question of so-called secret diplomacy in the statement on foreign affairs which I made to the House on the 18th day of December last, and I would refer my hon. Friend to that statement. I am at a loss to understand what proposals with regard to small nations my hon. Friend alludes to.
66. Lieut. - Colonel MALONE
asked whether it is intended to invite the Government of Esthonia to join the League of Nations; and, if not, what authority is responsible for dealing with questions concerning Esthonian territory which may arise at the League of Nations council?
§ Sir H. GREENWOOD
In reply to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to paragraph 2, Article I. of the Treaty of Versailles. As regards the second part, to Articles 4 and 17 of the same Treaty.
