HC Deb 14 April 1932 vol 264 c995
75. Mr. MANDER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is intended to publish reports of the proceedings of the meetings of the Council of the League of Nations as a White Paper in accordance with the practice under the previous Government?


The sixty-sixth meeting of the Council which, as my hon. Friend will remember, started towards the end of January, is still technically in session, and it is therefore not possible at present to publish a White Paper describing its proceedings. Owing to the very extended nature of the session, and the complication of the questions which have been discussed, it will be a matter of considerable difficulty and expense to produce a White Paper giving within a reasonable compass an adequate picture of the proceedings, but His Majesty's Government will certainly consider whether it is possible to publish some account of the session, and it is not their intention to depart from the normal practice in this matter.
