§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON (Tower Hamlets, Poplar)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what further steps have been taken to bring about the promised Conference on the Slave Trade?
§ * THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir J. FERGUSSON, Manchester, N.E.)
The Belgian Government have been in communication with the Powers concerned. From the latest information received from Brussels it appears that the Conference cannot assemble before the middle or end of October.
