§ 5. Sir J. D. REES
asked whether any and, if so, what action is to be taken upon the correspondence respecting the third International Opium Conference; whether it is proposed to pursue this matter further during the continuance of the War; and, if not, with what object the Report of the British delegates is to be presented to Parliament as soon as the protocol de cloture is officially received from the Netherlands Government?
§ Sir E. GREY
No further action has been taken beyond depositing the ratification of the signature of the British delegates, nor is it practicable to take any further action at present. The correspondence respecting the third conference, including the Report of the British delegates and the protocol de clôture, was laid before the House as No. 4 Miscellaneous (1915), in February last in accordance with an undertaking given in this House, with the object of making all the availabe information accessible to those Members of the House and of the general public who are interested in this question.
