HC Deb 01 March 1928 vol 214 c603
58. Mr. LUMLEY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if the operations for the freeing of slaves in Burma have been concluded; and the number of slaves who have been made free?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)

No report in the sense of the first part of the question has yet been received, though it has been stated in the Press that all slaves in the Triangle have now been released. I cannot therefore state the number of slaves set free.
