HC Deb 31 July 1934 vol 292 cc2475-6W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the Nazi attacks on the President of the Governing Commission of the Saar; and what steps are being taken to defend the President, who is a British subject, against such attacks?


The President of the Saar Governing Commission is a servant of the League of Nations, and it is incumbent on the Council of the League therefore to take any steps that may be considered necessary. It is of course the Saar Governing Commission which is responsible under the League of Nations for the maintenance of order in the territory.
