§ Sir A. SINCLAIR
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Hejaz and Nejd are recognised by His Majesty's Government as separate sovereign states united under one ruler or whether they are both comprised within one sovereign state; if so, what is the official designation of that state; and whether it is a member of the League of Nations?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
The Kingdoms of the Hejaz and of Nejd are recognised by His Majesty's Government as separate sovereign States under one ruler, King Abd-el-Aziz, Ibn Saud. The second part of the question, therefore, does not arise. As regards the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member, in so far as the Hejaz is concerned, to the answer given to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton East (Mr. Mandel) on 17th March. The Kingdom of Nejd is not a member of the League of Nations.
