§ 1. Mr. MANDER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the present position concerning the plan of assistance adopted by the League of Nations Council, on 13th October, for Liberia and the attitude of the Liberian Government thereon?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir John Simon)
The final reply of the Liberian Government to the League's offer of assistance was not received in Geneva in time for the meeting of the Council in January. The Council therefore could only decide on that occasion that the whole question must in any case be closed at the May session. The text of the Liberian reply was only received in the Foreign Office yesterday, and I have not yet had time to study it. But it would not, I fear, 1088 in any case be proper for me to comment on a document which has not yet been considered by the Council of the League for whose information it is intended.
§ Sir J. SIMON
I could not say. That is a matter which would have to be decided by the Council of the League.
