HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 c1506
14. Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the urgent need for an agreement on international asssistance for refugees, any steps will be taken before the next League of Nations Assembly to remove the opposition of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics to such schemes?

Mr. Butler

The question of the future of the League's work for refugees was entrusted by the last session of the League Council to a committee of three of its members. This committee was empowered by the Council to enter into consultation with governments, including, of course, the Soviet Government.
