HC Deb 20 February 1929 vol 225 cc1136-7W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the League of Nations has approached or has been consulted by the Government of Yugoslavia in regard to the question of an acceptable form of autonomy for Macedonia; and will he state, in view of the constant risk of European complications arising in this region, what is the present position?


As far as I know the League has not been consulted by Yugoslavia on this matter. By Articles 27 and 37 of the Treaty of Neuilly full and complete sovereignty is vested in the Serb-Croat-Slovene State over that part of the territory called Macedonia of which Serbia became possessed as the result of the Treaty of Bucharest of 10th August, 1913. The form of Government to be applied in this territory is therefore a matter solely for the Yugo-Slav Government to decide.
