HC Deb 11 December 1922 vol 159 cc2355-6
37. Mr. MOREL

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if His Majesty's Government has any information as to the existence of a military convention between France and Poland; if he can state what is now the position as to the registration of treaties and conventions between States members of the League of Nations with the Secretariat of the League; and whether provision for such registration is concerned merely with political instruments and not with military instruments?


An agreement containing a military Clause was published in the French "Temps" on 22nd February, 1921. As regards the second and third parts of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to Article 18 of the Covenant of the League of Nations, in which it is laid down that every treaty or international engagement shall be registered with the Secretariat of the League.
