Britain Urged to Press for Permanent League Body to Aid Refugees

ESTABLISHMENT BY THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS OF A PERMANENT REFUGEES BODY WAS URGED UPON THE FOREIGN OFFICE TODAY BY A DELEGATION OF NOTABLES INCLUDING THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY, LORD NOEL-BUXTON, LORD CECIL AND SIR WYNDHAM DEEDS.

THE DELEGATION SUGGESTED THE BODY AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE NANSEN OFFICE AND THE HIGH COMMISSION FOR REFUGEES FROM GERMANY, BOTH OF WHICH WILL BE TERMINATED IN 1938.

IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT THE REPLACEMENT TAKE THE FORM OF A REFUGEES SETTLEMENT OR LIQUIDATION COMMISSION CONSISTING OF IMPARTIAL EXPERTS. LORD CRANBOURNE, UNDERSECRETARY OF THE FOREIGN OFFICE, INFORMED THE DELEGATION THAT THE GOVERNMENT WOULD CONSIDER ITS SUGGESTIONS.
