For the present, though, the achievement of reduction and limitation of battle fleets was hailed enthusiastically by the participants in the Conference, and with varying degrees of warmth by the people of the nations concerned. Secretary Hughes voiced the hopes of many when he claimed that the Treaty 'ends, absolutely ends, the race in competition of naval armaments'.

A body called the Temporary Mixed Commission on Armaments was established by the Council of the League to consider the reduction of armaments and the private manufacture of weapons, and was instructed by the League's Assembly that year to prepare a definite scheme for the reduction of armaments. The first fruit of this new body was a draft Treaty of Mutual Assistance, adopted by the Commission in August 1923. 1 This sought to facilitate the reduction of armaments by guaranteeing the security of states through mutual military assistance.

The adjournment focused hopes for naval limitation on the forthcoming Coolidge Conference. While the Preparatory Commission had only to lay down the principles of disarmament, the draft Convention being intended to establish the method, not the actual formula of limitation, the Geneva Conference was planned to deal with the apparently more difficult task of producing a definite convention. To draw up such an agreement, only Britain sent an appropriately strong team, headed by Viscount Bridgeman, the First Lord of the Admiralty, and Viscount Cecil.
