§ 1. Major Sir ARCHIBALD SINCLAIR
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the French Government have yet ratified the Treaty recognising Rumanian sovereignty over Bessarabia; and whether this Treaty is legally binding upon those countries which have ratified it, or whether it will have to be ratified by all the signatories before it will become binding upon those who have already ratified?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Ponsonby)
The French law of the 9th April, 1924, authorises the President of the Republic to ratify the Treaty, but I have not yet heard that the President's ratification has been actually deposited. The Treaty becomes binding when all the signatories have ratified.
