§ 63. Mr. PONSONBY
asked the Prime Minister whether this House will be afforded an opportunity of expressing an opinion on the Treaty which may issue from the Lausanne Conference before that Treaty is ratified?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
While I do not admit the accuracy of the statement made by the hon. Member, I am unable to make any announcement on the subject while the Conference at Lausanne is still sitting.
§ Mr. T. P. O'CONNOR
(by Private Notice): May I ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs a question of which I have given him verbal notice, and perhaps the House will be glad to have the information. It is with regard to a telegram, stating that Ismet Pasha has agreed to join the League of Nations, and to let them take up the questions affecting minorities. I am afraid my hon. Friend has no confirmation, but, if so, may I repeat the question some time during the evening, when he may have some official information with regard to things which would give satisfaction to us all?
§ Mr. McNEILL
As my hon. Friend knows, he communicated with me only a few moments ago verbally in the House. Although I have no reason to suppose that the report is untrue, I have no official confirmation of it at the moment. But I shall be glad later to give any information which is at my disposal.
