HC Deb 02 May 1923 vol 163 c1342

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, as the result of the joint resolution introduced by Mr. Porter in the United States House of Representatives in January last, and subsequently passed by Congress, representations have been made by the United States Government to His Majesty's Government with regard to the necessity of limiting the production of opium to the amount actually required for medicinal and scientific purposes; and, if so, what reply has been sent?

Lieut.-Colonel BUCKLEY

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The second part does not, therefore, arise.
