HC Deb 16 November 1920 vol 134 cc1671-2
5. Mr. KILEY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many treaties and agreements have been registered with the League of Nations since its inauguration; how many of such treaties and agreements have been published; and whether, in such case, the complete text has been registered or published?


Sixteen treaties and international engagements of various kinds have up to the present been registered with the Secretariat of the League of Nations by His Majesty's Government. The complete texts have been communicated in every case. The duty of publication rests, of course, with the Secretariat-General of the League, and I have no information as to the number of treaties, etc., already published by the League, nor as to the number of treaties registered with the League by foreign Governments.

Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

May we assume that it is in the discretion of the Secretariat to publish or not?


I think that is so.

Forward to
