The Conference on Limitation of Armament was held in Washington, D.C. in 1921-22 between representatives of the five major allied powers (Britain, France, Italy, Japan, and the United States) (#Tucker, 2006). The result of this conference was the *Treaty Relating to the Use of Submarines and Noxious Gases in Warfare, which prohibited "the use in war of asphyxiating, poisonous and other gases and all analahous liquids, materials or devices." The U.S. Senate ratified the treaty but French objections concerning submarine provisions stopped the treaty from being enforceable.
