ARBITRATION, CONCILIATION, AND JUDICIAL
GENERAL ACT OF SEPTEMBER 26, 1928 France
According to a circular letter dated June 11, 1931, from the Acting Legal Adviser of the League of Nations, Mr. Aristide Briand, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Delegate of France to the Council of the League of Nations, deposited with the Secretariat of the League on May 21, 1931, in accordance with the provisions of article 43 of the general act for the pacific settlement of international disputes, the instrument of accession by His Excellency the President of the French Republic to all the provisions of this act (chapters I, II, III, and IV).
The following declaration was contained in the instrument of accession:
[Translation]1 The said accession concerning all disputes that may arise after the said accession with regard to situations or facts subsequent thereto, other than those which the Permanent Court of International Justice may recognise as bearing on a question left by international law to the exclusive competence of the State, it being understood that in application of article 39 of the said act the disputes which the parties or one of them may have referred to the Council of the League of Nations will not be submitted to the procedures described in this Act unless the Council has been unable to pronounce a decision under the conditions laid down in article 15, paragraph 6, of the Covenant.
Furthermore, in accordance with the resolution adopted by the Assembly of the League of Nations “on the submission and recommendation of the general act”, article 28 of this act is interpreted by the French Government as meaning in particular that “respect for rights established by treaty or resulting from international law” is obligatory upon arbitral tribunals constituted in application of chapter 3 of the said general act."
According to the following circular letter dated June 11, 1931, from the Acting Legal Adviser of the League of Nations, the instrument of accession of Great Britain to the general act was also deposited with the Secretariat on May 21, 1931:
1 Official translation of the League of Nations.
I have the honour to inform you that His Britannic Majesty's Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs deposited with the Secretariat of the League of Nations, on May 21, 1931, in accordance with the provisions of article 43 of the general act (pacific settlement of international disputes), the instrument of accession by His Majesty in respect of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and all parts of the British Empire which are not separate members of the League of Nations, to all the provisions of this act. (Chapters I, II, III, and IV.)
This accession is made subject to the following conditions:
(1) That the following disputes are excluded from the procedure described in the general act, including the procedure of conciliation: (i) Disputes arising prior to the accession of His Majesty to
the said general act, or relating to situations or facts prior
to the said accession; (ii) Disputes in regard to which the parties to the dispute have
agreed or shall agree to have recourse to some other
method of peaceful settlement; (iii) Disputes between His Majesty's Government in the United
Kingdom and the Government of any other member of the League which is a member of the British Commonwealth of Nations, all of which disputes shall be settled in such a manner as the parties have agreed or shall
agree; (iv) Disputes concerning questions which by international law
are solely within the domestic jurisdiction of states; and (v) Disputes with any party to the general act who is not a
member of the League of Nations. (2) That His Majesty reserves the right in relation to the disputes mentioned in article 17 of the general act to require that the procedure prescribed in chapter II of the said act shall be suspended in respect of any dispute which has been submitted to and is under consideration by the Council of the League of Nations, provided that notice to suspend is given after the dispute has been submitted to the Council and is given within ten days of the notification of the initiation of the procedure, and provided also that such suspension shall be limited to a period of twelve months or such longer period as may be agreed by the parties to the dispute or determined by a decision of all the members of the Council other than the parties to the dispute.
(3) (i) That, in the case of a dispute, not being a dispute mentioned in article 17 of the general act, which is brought before the Council of the League of Nations in accordance with the provisions of the Covenant, the procedure prescribed in chapter I of the general act, shall not be applied, and, if already commenced, shall be suspended, unless the Council determines that the said procedure shall be adopted.
(ii) That in the case of such a dispute, the procedure described in chapter III of the general act shall not be applied unless the Council has failed to effect a settlement of the dispute within twelve months from the date on which it was first submitted to the Council, or, in a case where the procedure prescribed in chapter I has been adopted
