HC Deb 09 February 1922 vol 150 cc297-8
45. Mr. L. MALONE

asked the Prime Minister whether a Treaty is being negotiated with the Emir Feisal; and, if so, whether it will be laid before the House of Commons before ratification?


Negotiations are proceeding on the lines that I foreshadowed on 14th June, 1921, for the readjustment on a Treaty basis of our relations with the provisionally independent State of Iraq. The proposed Treaty will in no way modify the obligations which we have undertaken to the League of Nations. It will be laid before this House before ratification.
