HC Deb 28 July 1939 vol 350 c1830W
Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Prime Minister whether he will ask the League of Nations to publish a statement showing the main changes made in the constitution and practice of the government of the Free State of Danzig since the present government assumed office in 1935, indicating the number of decrees issued restricting the rights and liberties of organisations and peoples, and stating whether all, or any, of these changes have been made after consultation with, and approval by the League of Nations and its representative, the High Commissioner?

Mr. Butler

My noble Friend will give the hon. Member's suggestion his consideration. But there are many difficulties in the way of making an authoritative statement in the manner proposed.
