§ 4. Mr. JOEL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can make any statement as to the virtual rejection by Liberia of the scheme of reform proposed by the League of Nations; and whether, in view of the attitude taken up by this country on the question of slavery, he proposes to press for a satisfactory settlement?
§ Sir J. SIMON
As regards the Liberian reply to the League's offer of assistance, I can add nothing to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, East (Mr. Mander) on 28th February. My hon. Friend may be assured that His Majesty's Government will continue to use their influence towards securing an improvement in the present unsatisfactory state of affairs.
