§ Mr. MANDER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can now state the names of the countries which have signed and ratified the convention relating to the international status of refugees; and whether it is now in operation?
§ Sir J. SIMON
According to the latest information received, the convention 733W relating to the international status of refugees has been signed by Belgium, Egypt, France, Bulgaria and Norway, each signature having been given with numerous reservations. None of these countries has ratified the convention, which is consequently not in operation.
