HC Deb 27 May 1935 vol 302 c778W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether representations have been received recently by the League of Nations with regard to the contravention of Article 73 of the League's Danzig Constitution by the legal and administrative disadvantages which operate against persons of Jewish birth in the Free City of Danzig; and will he report the substance of the representations and make any evidence offered in support available to the House?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part of the question, the communication to the general public of the substance of petitions submitted to the League Council and of any evidence offered in support of such petitions may only be made at the request of the State concerned, or by virtue of a resolution to this effect passed by the Council of the League after the matter has been duly submitted to it.
