The Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1824, also known as the Treaty of London, was a contract signed on 17 March 1824 in London between the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. The treaty was intended to resolve disputes arising from the implementation of the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1814. For the Dutch, it was signed by Hendrik Fagel and Anton Reinhard Falck, for the United Kingdom, George Canning and Charles Williams-Wynn. All transfers of ownership and facilities were scheduled for March 1, 1825. They agreed that the return of Java to the Netherlands had been settled in accordance with a Java convention of 24 June 1817, with the exception of a sum of 100,000 pounds to be paid by the Netherlands to London before the end of 1825. The treaty was ratified by the United Kingdom on 30 April 1824 and by the Netherlands on 2 June 1824. Negotiations resumed on 15 December 1823 and discussions focused on the creation of clear spheres of influence in the region. The Dutch understood that Singapore`s growth could not be curbed and insisted that they exchange their claims north of the Strait of Malacca and its Indian colonies in exchange for confirmation of their claims south of the strait, including the British colony of Bencoolen. The final contract was signed on 17 March 1824 by Fagel and Canning. It has been clearly established that the British require that the jurisdiction be delegated/granted/assigned by the Malay leaders to Her Majesty, in order to impose the conditions of a future federation of Malay states, which clearly states that the British are not entitled to legislate or act on behalf of the Malay leaders without the consent of the Malay leaders. From a legal point of view, it is fair to conclude that the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1824 and other treaties concluded by the British or The Dutch without the agreement and agreement of the Malay leaders in their respective jurisdictions with other parties were invalid.  The British establishment of Singapore on the Malay Peninsula in 1819 by Sir Stamford Raffles exacerbated tensions between the two nations, especially since the Dutch claimed that the treaty signed between Raffles and the Sultan of Johor was invalid and that the Sultanate of Johor was under the Dutch sphere of influence. Issues relating to the fate of Dutch trade rights in British India and the former Dutch possessions in the region have also become a point of disagreement between Calcutta and Batavia.
In 1820, under pressure from British traders, interest negotiations in the Far East began to clarify the situation in Southeast Asia. It was recognized that the treaty, adopted by the British and Dutch in 1824, was without the consent of the Malay leaders and their ministers, and was therefore incompetent, so that it was null and for none. The invalidity of such treaties, including the Treaty of 1824, was recognized in paragraph 3, as provided for in the British Parliament`s White Paper for the formation of an EU government in 1946. Para 3 says; The Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1824, intended to resolve many of the problems posed by the British occupation of Dutch colonial possessions during the Napoleonic Wars, as well as those relating to trade rights that lasted hundreds of years in the spice islands between the two nations, was a treaty that dealt with a wide range of issues and did not clearly describe the limits of expansion on both sides in the Malay world. Negotiations between Canning and Fagel began on July 20, 1820. The Dutch insisted on the British abandonment of Singapore. Indeed, Canning was unsure of the exact circumstances in which Singapore was acquired and, initially, only undisputed topics such as free navigation rights and the elimination of piracy were agreed upon. Discussions on this subject were suspended on 5 August 1820 and did not resume until 1823, when Singapore`s commercial value was recognized by the British.
