HC Deb 04 November 1920 vol 134 c587W

asked the Prime Minister what are the constitution, functions, and powers of the Council of Ambassadors in Paris; what States are represented at the Council; who is the British representative; and what steps are taken to make public the decisions of this Council?


The Conference of Ambassadors was formed at the beginning of this year to deal with all matters arising out of the execution and interpretation of the treaties of peace. It includes representatives of the five principal Allied and Associated Powers. A Belgian representative is also entitled to be present when matters affecting Belgium are discussed. His Majesty's Ambassador at Paris is the British representative on the Conference. Upon the conclusion of each conference an official communiqué reporting the proceedings is generally published by the French Foreign Office.
