The dispute between Great Britain and France, representing the mandatory powers, and the representatives of Sweden and Holland, representing the Permanent Mandates Commission, will not come up for discussion before December, according to Sir Austen Chamberlain, British Foreign Secretary.

Notwithstanding any action which the Assembly of the League of Nations may take following its discussion of the report of the Permanent Mandates Commission, the question cannot come up before the Council of the League of Nations until the December session. Sir Austen explained that Great Britain and France have asked the postponement of the case in order to enable the mandatory powers to study the demands of the Permanent Mandates Commission. Chamberlain indicated that Great Britain would be unalterably opposed to the proposals of the Commission to direct a detailed inquiry to the mandatory powers and to allow inhabitants of the mandated territories to send petitions and to send delegations to appear before the Commission.
