§ MR. HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the new Extradition Treaty between Her Majesty and the United States has been duly ratified and is now in force; and whether, having regard to the longstanding interchange of criminal refugees between Anglo-Saxon States which may now be effectually stopped, the provisions of the new Treaty can be brought to the knowledge of the Chief Officers of Police throughout the country?
§ *THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir J. FERGUSSON,) Manchester, N.E.
The new Extradition Treaty between Her Majesty and the United States has been duly ratified, and will come into force on the 4th of April. I am informed that the Secretary of State for the Home Department will call the attention of Chief Officers of Police to the Treaty.
