The present High Commissioner's decision of February 2nd, 1925 declares (paragraph 6) that the dispute, "stripped of all its technicalities, is whether the working area of the Polish postal service extends beyond the buildings allotted to that service".
The High Commissioner has examined this question in the light of certain decisions, or pronouncements, of his predecessor, General Haking.
The High Commissioner considers that the questions now at issue between Poland and the Free City of Danzig are decided finally by a decision given by General Haking on May 25th, 1922, which in his opinion should he regarded as having been authoritatively interpreted and shown to be applicable by a decision given by General Haking on December 23rd, and a letter addressed by General Haking on January 6th, 1923, to the Commissioner-General of the Polish Republic at Danzig. He has accordingly (paragraph 18 of the decision of February 2nd, 1925) reaffirmed, in language intended to make explicit its application to the present dispute, the decision which he considers General Haking to have given.
The Council has the honour to request the Permanent Court of International Justice, in conformity with Article 14 of the Covenant, to give an advisory opinion upon the following questions:
(1) Is there in force a decision of General Haking which decides in the manner stated in paragraph 18 of the present High Commissioner's decision of February 2nd, 1925, or otherwise the points at issue regarding the Polish postal service, and, if so, does such decision prevent reconsideration by the High Commissioner or the Council of all or any of the points in question ?
(2) If the questions set out at (a) and (b) below have not been finally decided by General Haking:
. (a) Is the Polish postal service at the Port of Danzig restricted to operations which can be performed entirely
