HC Deb 18 July 1927 vol 209 c19

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the Rumano-Hungarian Mixed Arbitral Tribunal on 10th January of this year delivered a considered judgment declaring itself to be competent to entertain cases brought before it by certain Hungarian nationals against the Rumanian Government, and that later the Council of the League of Nations appointed a committee to consider the question upon which the tribunal had given its judgment; by what authority such committee was appointed; and whether he will instruct the British delegate at the next session of the Council of the League to raise the question of the competence of the Council, or of a committee appointed by it, to question or review the findings of a tribunal established by international treaty?


My hon. Friend would appear to be under a misapprehension. He will find full information as to the occasion of the Council's intervention and its action on page 6 of Command Paper 2894 of 1927, of which I am sending him a copy.
