HC Deb 09 April 1936 vol 310 c2948W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government will take the necessary steps to ensure that any agreement which may be reached between the military staff of Great Britain and France and/or Belgium shall be presented to the League of Nations for registration, in pursuance of Article 18 of the Covenant?


A.5 my right hon. Friend explained to the House in his statement on Friday last, the conversations will be of a purely technical character and will not increase our political obligations. They will therefore not lead to an international engagement such as is suitable for registration with the League under Article 18 of the Covenant.
