HC Deb 16 November 1925 vol 188 c20
5. Mr. FENBY

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can make any statement as to the present position of the Mosul frontier dispute?


The question of the northern frontier of Iraq has been before the Council of the League of Nations, which, as the hon. Member is probably aware, referred certain judicial points to the Permanent Court of International Justice at The Hague. The Permanent Court has not yet given a decision on the points referred to it, but it is hoped that the decision will he given before the end of the present month so that the Council of the League of Nations may resume its consideration of the question early in December.


Have the Government abandoned the intention of giving up this country by 1928?


We are not abandoning anything.
