§ 25. Lieut.-Colonel Sir S. HOARE
asked the Prime Minister, now that the Hungarian Treaty has been ratified by the British Government, what steps have been taken by the Magyar Government to evacuate the German districts of West Hungary and by the Yugo-Slav Government to evacuate the Pecs coalfield?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
The Treaty does not come into force until the ratifications of three of the principal Allied and Associated Powers and of Hungary have been deposited. As soon as that has been done steps' will be taken to secure its execution. So far, only His Majesty's ratification and those of Italy and Hungary have 1494 been sent to Paris and are ready for deposit.
§ Sir S. HOARE
Does the hon. Gentleman know when the French Government is expected to ratify the Treaty?
