§ 9. Mr. GORDON MACDONALD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action it was decided to take, at the recent League of Nations' Advisory Committee, in the event of Paraguay not accepting the recommendations of the League of Nations Council?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)
With the House's permission, I will answer this question in the absence of my right hon. Friend. At the recent meeting of the advisory committee, it was agreed that certain South American Governments should make further efforts to induce the belligerents 1567 to accept a settlement of the dispute within the framework of the report and recommendations adopted by the Assembly of the League on the 24th November last. Failing the success of these efforts, the whole question is to be referred again to the Assembly.
§ Mr. HANNON
So far as this country is concerned has every possible effort been made to bring this unfortunate state of affairs to a conclusion?
