HC Deb 09 June 1890 vol 345 c346
MR. A. E. PEASE (York)

T beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether the shipment of labourers from Zanzibar to the Congo, amongst whom are large numbers of slaves, has been brought under the-notice of the Brussels Conference with a view to its being investigated; and, if not, will immediate steps be taken towards this end?


The functions of a Conference are not judicial, and it is not probable that the President would permit the discussion of matters not involving international agreements on the subject of the Slave Trade.
