HC Deb 18 March 1925 vol 181 c2242
7. Mr. RILEY

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the British Government still stands by its obligations as one of the signatories to the Minority Treaties; and, if so, what stops are now being taken to have the treaties carried out?


The Minority Treaties are placed under the supervision of the League of Nations, and appeals from the Minorities are not infrequently submitted to the Council. Even in my short experience of Council proceedings I have had ample evidence of the care and attention which the Members of the Council devote to their consideration. Each ease is necessarily decided on its merits, and no general statement is, I think, possible.
