HC Deb 02 December 1920 vol 135 cc1465-6W

asked the Prime Minister whether the right hon. Member for Hitchin (Lord R. Cecil) and the President of the Beard of Education voted on the Commission of the League of Nations in favour of conditions for new members which would exclude from the League both Germany and Russia; whether their votes were cast on instructions from the British Government; and whether the British Government will consider the desirability of including Germany and Russia in the League with a view to increasing its efficiency?


I have no information as to the first part of the question. With regard to the second part, I would refer the hon. Member to a reply given to a similar question yesterday by my right hon. Friend the Lord Privy Seal.

The answer to the third part of the question is, of course, that His Majesty's Government fully recognise the desirability of encouraging by every means in its power the efficiency of the League.
