§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Dalton)
Twenty-six of the signatories to tale Protocol have now ratified it, but the following nineteen signatories have not yet done so: Abyssinia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Czechoslovakia, Estonia, Greece, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Norway, Salvador, Siam, Switzerland, United States of America, and Uruguay. I understand that the Netherlands are taking steps to ratify the Protocol shortly. So far as I am aware, none of the above States has informed the Secretary-General of the League of its reasons for not ratifying the Protocol.
§ Mr. DALTON
I should like to have notice of that question. The conditions of ratification vary in different cases.
