HC Deb 17 July 1929 vol 230 cc403-4
11. Mr. AYLES

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the increasing unrest in the Balkans, with its menace to European peace, he will, in accordance with Article XI of the Covenant of the League, use his position as a member of the Council of the League to get a conference of the Balkan nations, with a view to the settlement of the major outstanding problems between those countries?


If my hon. Friend has had in mind the recent tension along the Yugoslav-Bulgarian frontier I prefer to assume for the present that the two Governments concerned will be able to remove it by direct negotiations without the intervention of the League.
