§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked the Prime Minister whether any of the draft mandates for any mandated territories are now complete; whether they will be presented in the first instance to a meeting of the principal allied and associated Powers to whom the sovereignty of all mandated territories was transferred by the Treaties of Peace or direct to the League of Nations; and whether finally to the Assembly or Council of the League?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The draft mandates are not yet ready. Negotiations are still proceeding between the powers concerned in regard to certain points. If the negotiations are concluded at an early date the mandates will be completed and brought before the League of Nations at their next meeting for confirmation.
