1. With reference to C. F. 76, Minute 5,1 the Council had before them the draft reply to the German Note, prepared by the Drafting Reply to the Committee, together with the Protocol to be attached to that Note. (Appendix I.) Reply to the German Note
Baron Makino raised the question as to whether the Japanese Government would be represented on the Reparations Commission when questions relating to the German railways and mines in Shantung were under consideration.
After some discussion, M. Loucheur suggested that, as this was a matter affecting the Allied and Associated Powers only and not the enemy, an understanding should be reached that, whenever this question was raised at the Reparation Commission, the Japanese Government should be represented.
Baron Makino said he would be satisfied if this was understood.
(It was agreed that, whenever the Reparations Commission discussed the question of the German railways and mines in Shantung, the Japanese Government should have a representative on the Commission.)
(The letter prepared by the Drafting Committee was approved and M. Clemenceau undertook to sign and communicate it immediately, on behalf of the Allied and Associated Powers, to the German Delegation.)
