asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs at what date the Convention of St. Germain-en-Laye, revising the General Act of Berlin and the General Act of Brussels, came into force?


Article 15 of the Convention provides that the Convention shall come into force for each Signatory Power from the date of the deposit of its ratification, and from that moment that power will be bound in respect of other powers which have already deposited their ratifications. Under this provision the Convention came into force on 31st July, 1920, when the ratifications of Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India and Belgium were deposited. Further ratifications were deposited subsequently.
