§ 47. Mr. WALLHEAD
asked the Prime Minister whether he is prepared to propose the admission of Abyssinia to the League of Nations as a sovereign State in order that the League may bring its full influence to bear with that State for the purpose of ending the slave-holding system which exists in Abyssinia?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
There is no provision in the Covenant for a State being proposed as a member of the League by another State. It is for any State seeking admission to apply for membership itself. The answer is therefore in the negative.
§ Captain BERKELEY
Will the British Government suggest to Abyssinia that she should apply for membership?
