5. F. HALL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if any steps have been taken, or are proposed to be taken, to schedule those industrial areas in Africa and South America where the conditions of labour are known to be unsatisfactory and where British capital is invested, or where companies are located which are wholly or partly under British management, with a view to the prevention of the state of affairs which has been found to have existed in Putumayo?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Acland)
The whole question of the steps to be taken in this matter is being considered by His Majesty's Government.
