HC Deb 02 March 1925 vol 181 cc11-2
15. Captain LODER

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Reports submitted by the British and Dominion Governments to the Permanent Mandates Commission of the League of Nations on territories under their mandate will be presented to Parliament; and whether he will cause the most recent Reports to be presented as soon as possible?


It was decided in 1923, and the decision has since been followed, that the Reports on territories mandated to this country, like the Annual Reports on the Colonies and Protectorates, should be published, not as Parliamentary Papers, i.e.., in the series known as "Command" papers, but in a separate series of publication issued by the Stationery Office. I shall be happy to give my hon. and gallant friend a list of the most recent such Reports. The question of the publication of the Reports en the territories mandated to the Dominions is one for the Governments of the Dominions concerned.
