§ 11. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will have the Report of General Walsh's Inter-Allied Committee issued as a White Paper?
I would refer the right hon. and gallant Member to the answer given to the hon. Member for Middlesbrough West (Mr. T. Thomson) on the 25th February.
§ 18. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is yet in a position to state the nationality of the chairman of the committee appointed by the League of Nations to succeed the Inter-Allied Military Mission of Control when that body has completed its work?
Acting upon the invitation issued to him by the Council of the League of Nations at its meeting on the 9th December last, the President of the Council has made the following appointments, which are due to last for one year, for the Presidency of the League Commissions of Investigations in the four ex-enemy countries:
Major-General W. M. St. G. Kirke, C.B., C.M.G., D.S.O., of the British Army, for the Commission of Investigation in Hungary.
General Desticker, of the French Army, for the Commission of Investigation in Germany.
General Jean Marietti, of the Italian Army, for the Commission of Investigation in Austria.
Lieut.-General Carl August Hugo Jungstedt, of the Swedish Army, for the Commission of Investigation in Bulgaria.
Does the right hon. Gentleman think it altogether desirable that a French General should be in command of a League investigation in Germany?
I entirely support the decision taken, at the invitation of the Council, by the President of the Council.
§ Major Sir ARCHIBALD SINCLAIR
When the right hon. Gentleman says that these appointments are for one year, is 406 it intended that there should be a change in the nationality of the chairman at the end of a year?
The appointment is fur one year, and it will be open to the Council to make any other appointment at the end of one year. Whether the Council will desire to do or not I am unable to say.
