PARIS, April 12

The Labour Commission's Clauses .for the Peace Treaty will be amended owing to the opposition of the 'Dominions' representatives, to clause ■eight, giving similar industrial 'concessions to aliens as to the nationals of the country concerned. Nothing was said at yesterday's plenary session, but until the last moment the position remained doubtful, Mr Wilson urgently seeking the immediate adoption of 'the clause. Mr Massey and Mr Hughes had to leave the table whilst the session was proceeding, but reiterated their attitude, whereupon Mr Wilson agreed to leave the matter to the SuPreme Council to settle.

A definite agreement was reached as follows:—The left bank of the Rhine to be demilitarised, but not occupied, remaining under German sovereignty; the baar Valley to be directly controlled by the League of Nations for fifteen years;. when a plebiscite will decide its nationality; Danzig to become a free port under the League of Nations, with Customs arrangements with Poland, auu to be accepted as Poland's port, though it,, is in no way to come under Polish jurisdiction.
