§ 49. Sir W. SMILES
asked the Lord President of the Council whether the provision of the Royal Charter granted to the League of Nations Union imposes any restriction on its political activities similar to those imposed on allied societies in foreign countries such as Germany?
§ Mr. R. MacDONALD
The charter of the League of Nations Union provides that, in pursuance of the objects for which it was incorporated, the Union shall work as a non-party organisation for the good of the League of Nations. No other restriction is imposed by the charter on its political activities. As regards the latter part of the question relating to the activities of similar bodies in foreign countries, I regret that I am not in a position to give my hon. and gallant Friend the information required.
§ Mr. SILVERMAN
Does the right hon. Gentleman consider that what takes place in Germany is a proper model for this country to follow?
