§ 21. Mr. CHARLES BUXTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, seeing that in a letter, dated 23rd May, 1929, from the President of the Conference of Ambassadors to the Council of the League of Nations, it was pointed out that at the time of the withdrawal of the liquidation board Austria had not complied with all the requirements of the Treaty of St. Germain with respect to disarmament, he can say whether the Council of the League has considered this letter; and whether they have come to any conclusion from the facts reported to them on behalf of the Conference of Ambassadors?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
The Council of the League has not yet considered this letter; the answer to the last part of the question is, therefore, in the negative.
