§ Mr. MANDER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (1) whether it is the intention of the Government to ratify the Arms Traffic Convention of the League of Nations;
(2) whether it is the intention of the Government to ratify the declaration regarding the territory of Ifni of the League of Nations?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
As I informed the hon. and gallant Member for Montrose (Sir R. Hutchison) on 8th July, the question of the immediate ratification of the Arms Traffic Convention of 1925 is among the questions which His Majesty's Government have under consideration. The declaration regarding Ifni provides for the inclusion of this 53W territory in the special zones specified in the Arms Traffic Convention. Its ratification is, of course, dependent on the ratification of the main convention.
