§ MR. W. M. TORRENS
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, What steps have been taken by the present Khedive of Egypt to carry into effect the stipulations of the Convention of 4th August 1877, made between the British Government and Ismail, late Khedive of Egypt, for the suppression of the Slave Trade, the period having expired after which the kidnapping and sale of persons into slavery was to have been prohibited?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
The best answer I can give is to say that Papers will be laid on the Table next week. They will contain all the information asked for, and will show that steps have been taken which, I think, he will recognize as being effectual.
