Phillimore Report

The Phillimore Report was produced by the Phillimore Committee that enquired into proposals for a League of Nations. It was chaired by Lord Phillimore and included Albert Pollard, John Holland Rose, Julian Corbett, Eyre Crowe, William Tyrrell, and Cecil Hurst.[1]

The committee was established in January 1918 after being suggested to Arthur Balfour by Lord Robert Cecil.[2]

It submitted its report on 20 March 1918 and the Cabinet discussed it on 24 December, in which the idea of a League was endorsed.
