§ 52. Mr. C. BUXTON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, at the recent meeting of the Council of the League of Nations, the British representative protested against or made any comments upon the decree of 968 the Governing Commission of the Saar District imposing severe penalties on any person who should criticise the actions of the said Governing Commission; and what answer was given by M. Rault, the French representative on the Commission?
§ Mr. McNEILL
I cannot undertake to give the House details of a discussion in the Council of the League of Nations. I must ask the hon. Member to await the issue of whatever statement the Council may decide to publish.
§ Captain BERKELEY
May I ask the British representative, whom we are glad to see back again with the House, whether a statement on the work of the Council will be made at an early date?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Edward Wood)
I cannot say in what form a statement will be made. It is obviously a matter for the Leader of the House. I advise hon. Members to follow the advice of the Under-Secretary for Foreign Affairs, and await the full report.
