HC Deb 19 August 1919 vol 119 cc2164-6W
Lieut.-Colonel GUINNESS

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is able to state on what date and through what channels the Danish Government asked for the abandonment of the plebiscite and German evacuation of the third zone in Sleswig?


The abandonment of the plebiscite in the third zone in Sleswig was decided by the Council of Five on 14th June, in view of the objections of the Danish Government, communicated to the Peace Conference by the Danish Minister in Paris by his letter to Monsieur Clemenceau of 17th May. The abandonment of the question of German evacuation naturally followed on the abandonment of the plebiscite.
