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.
