HC Deb 16 June 1924 vol 174 c1743W

asked the Prime Minister whether Germany has shown any desire at any time to enter the League of Nations; whether there is any reason to believe an invitation at the present moment by the League to do so would be accepted; and whether the British representative to the League, will he instructed to press that such invitation be sent?


Germany has hitherto made no formal application to enter the League of Nations. The procedure is that nations desirous of becoming members of the League make an application to that body to that effect. The League does not invite nations to become members. The last part of the question does not therefore arise, but His Majesty's Government are certainly in favour of the admission of Germany to the League at the earliest possible moment and would welcome her application for admission.
