§ 7. Mr. CHARLES WILLIAMS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will state whether Article 246 of the Treaty of Versailles, in so far as it affects the British Government, has been fully carried out; and when this was done?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
No, Sir. His Majesty's Government made representations to the German Government on this subject in 1920 and again in 1921. The German view was that the skull was not taken to Germany but buried locally. Although efforts were made to obtain confirmation of this view in Tanganyika territory, these efforts proved inconclusive and the whereabouts of the skull have never been established.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
Is the right hon. Gentleman making any efforts to carry out that part of the Article and more particularly what happens in the first part of the Article?
I do not know what the hon. Member wants me to do. If he will let me know I will see what can be done.
§ Mr. MARKHAM
Has the right hon. Gentleman received any evidence of discontent in Tanganyika territory in the area of the tribe concerned regarding the non-return of the skull?
