§ 18. Mr. A. HERBERT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether an undertaking was given by the Government to submit the Anglo-Persian Agreement to the League of Nations; and, if so, whether this undertaking has been carried out?
No under, taking was given, but His Majesty's Government have repeatedly expressed their intention to communicate the agreement to the League of Nations, in accordance with Article XVIII. of the Covenant, as soon as it has been endorsed by the Persian Parliament.
As the hon. Member knows, there has been considerable Oriental delay in consulting the Persian Parliament, but it is expected to take place very soon.
