§ 8. Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether the signature of the Kellogg Pact has affected the policy of His Majesty's Government with regard to the acceptance of all-inclusive arbitration for the settlement of international disputes; and whether they are prepared to support the general Act for all-inclusive arbitration approved by the ninth Assembly of the League of Nations?
The signature of the Kellogg Pact will no doubt have far-reaching influence on many questions of policy, including international arbitration, but it is premature to make any declaration as to the limits or the precise nature of this influence.
The whole matter was considered and largely agreed upon at the Third Committee at Geneva, but the Assembly gave two alternatives, one referring to general arbitration and the other to bilateral agreements.
