HC Deb 24 February 1926 vol 192 c527W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the extension of membership on the Council of the League beyond that of Germany was discussed at Locarno; and, if so, whether he can give the House any information as to the nature of the discussion?


No, Sir. The Powers represented at Locarno who were members of the Council of the League had already expressed their willingness to support the election of Germany to a permanent seat on the Council, but no question was raised as to the claims of other Powers, and I never heard it suggested then or earlier that the agreement to support Germany implied an agreement to oppose every other change.
