HC Deb 18 April 1932 vol 264 c1254
14. Mr. COCKS (for Mr. RHYS DAVIES)

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Council of the League of Nations has made any recommendations with regard to the alleged infringement by Lithuania of the Memel Statute; and, if so, whether His Majesty's Government has made representations to Lithuania in accordance with such recommendations?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I returned on the 24th of February last to a question by the hon. Member for West Bermondsey (Dr. Salter) on this subject. The points at issue between the signatory Powers and the Lithuanian Government, with regard to the interpretation of the Memel Statutes, have now been submitted for decision to the Permanent Court of International Justice by His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom, acting in conjunction with the Governments of France, Italy and Japan.
