The Commission to Negotiate Peace to the Secretary of State


4737. Supreme Council adopted in morning session resolution upon recommendation of drafting committee:

“All commissions to be constituted by the Allied and Associated Powers shall be duly composed and shall function regularly with the representatives designated by the powers having ratified the treaty or who, without having ratified, have agreed to proceed with the designation of a representative to the Commission.

If all the powers whose representation is provided for in the treaty have not designated their representatives at the time of the entry into force of the treaty, the decisions taken by the Commission shall be none the less valid. And if, in like cases, there is an equality of votes, the procedure should be as is provided for in article 437 of the treaty.”
