§ 22. Mr. DALTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the Government of the Free City of Danzig have issued an order to all public employés either to join the Nazi party or to resign their posts; and whether he has taken any action in the matter of this breach of treaty obligations?
§ Mr. DALTON
Have we not a Consul-General in Danzig, and is it not part 18 of his duty to report to our Ambassador in Warsaw?
§ Mr. EDEN
There must not be any misunderstanding about this. The channel of communication is through Geneva, and not through His Majesty's Consul-General at Danzig. The High Commissioner, of course, if he wishes to communicate with the rapporteur, communicates with him through Geneva and not through His Majesty's Consul-General.
§ Mr. DALTON
I appreciate that, but the right hon. Gentleman said that he had no information. My question is whether we have not a Consul-General at Danzig whose duty is to furnish information on happenings there.
Lieut.-Colonel SANDEMAN ALLEN
Is not the rule that all officials should belong to a particular organisation one that trade unions are always trying to enforce in this country?
§ 26. Mr. THORNE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give the House any information in connection with the agreement that has just been reached between Poland and Germany relative to Danzig?
