HC Deb 30 July 1923 vol 167 cc1013-4
24. Mr. LEACH

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many representatives of the political Labour movements of each of the countries concerned are entitled to attend the council meetings of the League of Nations?


States members of the Council are entitled to one representative each, to take part in the deliberations. The meetings of the Council are mostly held in public, and any persons interested can be present as spectators at such meetings if they so desire.


What I intended to ask the right hon. Gentleman—and I thought the question was clear—was, how many actual labour delegates from each country (take part in the Council meetings?


I have answered that question. Each State which is a member of the Council is entitled to one.
