HC Deb 08 April 1925 vol 182 c2205
15. Captain BOURNE

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the Treaty signed on 21st January, 1925, at Pekin between the representatives of the Imperial Government of Japan and those of the Government of the Union of Socialist Soviet Republics has yet been ratified by either and, if so, which of the contracting Governments; and, if ratified, whether the text of this Treaty has been communicated to the League of Nations?


Ratifications were exchanged on the 26th February, and the Treaty becomes operative from that date. As far as I know, the Treaty has not yet been communicated to the League of Nations, but as the text of the Treaty has only recently reached this country, it is still early to expect its communication to the League.
