HC Deb 09 December 1936 vol 318 c1973
7. Sir A. KNOX

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in the course of the negotiations resulting in the adhesion of the Soviet Government to the League of Nations, any concessions were granted to them to secure their adhesion; and, in particular, whether any discussion took place or any pledge was given as to the liquidation of the Nansen Office for the relief of refugees?


The answer to the first part of the question is No, Sir. It follows from that that no pledge was given concerning the future of the Nansen Office. So far as I am aware the subject was never even discussed.
