The answer to the first part of my hon. and gallant Friend's question is in the affirmative, and I have tendered my resignation to the Secretary-General of the League. As to the second, Members of the Permanent Mandates Commission are appointed by the Council of the League of Nations; as to the third, I hope that arrangements may be made shortly to propose a name to the Council of the League after consultation with Dominion Governments.
