I am not in a position at present to add anything to the reply given on 3rd February to the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Mr. Riley), a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend.

May I ask my right hon. Friend whether, on receipt of this report, he proposes to publish it within a reasonable time?

I cannot say until I have received it. Perhaps the hon. Member will put the question down again when I receive the report, which I expect to do shortly.

If in the meantime this matter comes before the League of Nations Office, will the right hon. Gentleman undertake to instruct his delegates not to queer the pitch?
