Sir HERBERT AMES:

It is the earnest desire as far as possible to have every Power great and small enter the League of Nations in due course. For example, I do not think there is any desire to keep out for any prolonged period even those States [DOT]which were originally enemies of the Allies. It is only a question of when the right time arrives for those Powers one by one to be taken in, on condition that they apply to be taken in, and I think practically all of them will apply. In the case of Russia it is impossible to prophesy, because we do not know what condition of affairs exists in that country, nor are we permitted as yet to carry on that inquiry which the League considers to be necessary in order to know the exacst facts regarding the Soviet administration.

Sir HERBERT AMES:

ll think I can only tell the hon. member that that is all set forth in the Treaty. A commission of five members to administer the Saar Basin was appointed at the first and second meetings of the Council of the League of Nations. For the time being they have very wide powers in the Saar Basin. They administer practically all the affairs of that district; the civil service, railways, telephones and telegraphs are all under their control. It is their duty to see that the stipulations in the Treaty with respect to the coal and the proportion of it which will reach France

shall be strictly adhered to. Under their guidance I think they are adhered to.

The nation that has refused to do what it contracted to do would be expected to withdraw from the League.

Sir HERBERT AMES:

As I understand it, no treaty is valid until it is registered; that is, no nation which is a member of the League is bound to observe the treaty.
