HC Deb 01 December 1920 vol 135 c1278W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the appointment of Mr. Alwin Robinson Dickinson as Commissioner of Nauru Island has been submitted to and approved by the League of Nations?

Lieut.-Colonel AMERY

No, Sir. Possibly my hon. Friend is confusing the appointment of a Commissioner under Article 3 of the Nauru Agreement, whose duties are purely commercial, with that of Administrator under Article 1, which has not yet been made; but in neither case is there any obligation to submit the name of the person selected to the League of Nations.
