On 17 April 1936, Austria, who is like wise a member of the League of Nations, has thought fit to take a course which, in similar circumstances, the Council of the League of Nations solemnly, condemned by its resolution of 17 April 1936 cannot in any case admit that Austria should be allowed to take the law into her own hands by this unilateral step, which represents a negation of international obligations. Austria rejected the protest. When they drafted the new bill, they did so deliberately and with the knowledge that they had thereby fulfilled their obligations with regard to providing the Austrian people with the necessities of life and to safeguarding the existence of the Austrian state.
