§ 27. Commander BELLAIRS
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what steps have been taken to ratify the rules for restricting aerial operations in war to military objectives, as agreed to by the International Commission of Jurists at The Hague in 1923, especially in regard to prohibitions against inflicting injuries to non-combatants and civilian property?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
It was not found possible to obtain the agreement of all the Powers concerned in the draft rules to which the hon. and gallant Member refers, and no steps have consequently been taken to raitfy them.
