HC Deb 26 April 1944 vol 399 cc745-6
6. Sir Irving Albery

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has any information as to the use which is being made, at present, of the League of Nations buildings in Geneva.

Mr. Eden

Apart from the offices occupied by the Acting Secretary-General and a comparatively small staff of officials and clerks, and the library, which is open to the public, the greater part of the buildings of the League of Nations at Geneva is at present closed.

Sir I. Albery

Has consideration been given to the possibility of making these premises serve some useful purpose?

Mr. Eden

I should like to have notice of that Question, although I do not think we can do much about it.

Colonel Greenwell

Could they be used as a hospital to nurse the League of Nations back to health?
