§ Mr. ANNAN BRYCE
asked what are the international agreements made or proposed to which this country is, or is willing to become, a party relating to the suppression of the white slave traffic?
§ Sir E. GREY
There are two international agreements having for their object the suppresion of the white slave traffic, to both of which this country is a party. The first, which relates more particularly to the administrative measures to be adopted by the States parties to it, was concluded in 1904, and published as a Parliamentary Paper in No. 24 of the 943 Treaty Series of 1905. The second instrument was signed at Paris in. May of last year, and its object, stated shortly, is to secure legislative action with a view to bringing the laws of the contracting States into harmony. This Convention will be published when the ratification of the Powers parties to it have been deposited at Paris, which at present has not been done.
