HC Deb 03 May 1922 vol 153 cc1315-6
2. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Commission to examine and report on the laws of war contemplated by the Washington agreement has actually been appointed; and, if so, who are the members thereof?


The United States Government have been notified of the appointment of Sir Rennell Rodd and Sir Erie Richards as the British delegates. The much regretted death of Sir Erie Richards has since deprived the British Empire of his services on the Commission, and the post of second British delegate has now to be filled. The United States Government have not yet communicated to His Majesty's Government the names of the delegates apointed by the United States of America, France, Italy and Japan.
