HC Deb 16 May 1928 vol 217 c1010

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the position of His Majesty's Government as regards the British representation on the Consultative Committee of the Economic Organisation of the League of Nations, whether any of the delegates represent His Majesty's Government; and whether any instructions have been issued to such delegate or delegates?

The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Herbert Williams)

The British members of the Economic Consultative Committee of the League of Nations are appointed by the Council of the League to serve in their personal capacity. They are not representatives of, and consequently do not receive any instructions from, His Majesty's Government.
