HC Deb 09 July 1930 vol 241 cc447-8W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many vacancies will require to be filled up on the Permanent Court of International Justice at the League of Nations Assembly in September; and what nominations have so far been received?


Mr. Charles Evans Hughes recently resigned his post as Judge of the Court, and his resignation was accepted by the Council in May last, subject to the approval of the Assembly. It is to be expected, therefore, that in September a successor will have to be appointed in Mr. Hughes place for the remainder of his term of office, i.e., until 31st December next. At that date the term of all the Judges expires, and their successors will, therefore, have also to be elected during the September session of the Assembly. I have not yet received any official list of nominations.
