HC Deb 05 May 1924 vol 173 cc25-6

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he proposes to introduce a Bill, or Bills, dealing with the Treaty with Iraq and the protocols thereto; when the Bill, or Bills, will be introduced; when the Treaty and protocols will be dealt with by the Assembly in Iraq; and whether approval by the Iraq Assembly will be required prior to the introduction of the Bills in Parliament?


The Treaty and connected documents are now under the consideration of the Iraq Constituent Assembly. I can make no statement at present as to what further action will be taken by His Majesty's Government.
