HC Deb 19 February 1951 vol 484 c131W
49. Mr. J. Foster

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the number of treaties and agreements concluded with foreign countries and the Dominions in the years 1946–50, inclusive, which have not been registered with the United Nations, and have not been published; and whether he will publish a list of all such agreements, giving the reasons for not registering them with the United Nations.

Mr. Younger

About 250 treaties and agreements concluded during this period have not yet been registered with the United Nations. Of these about 225 are in process of registration, the majority having already been published. The few agreements awaiting registration that have not been published are of the type that can await publication in the United Nations Treaty Series. Those agreements which are not in process of registration have all been published and will be registered when they enter into force.
