HC Deb 02 June 1937 vol 324 c987
4. Mr. Day

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any of the countries which were parties to the Opium Convention of the League of Nations have failed to ratify it.

Mr. Eden

I am not sure which Opium Convention the hon. Member has in mind, but, if he is referring to the Convention which was signed at Geneva on 19th February, 1925, the answer to the question is that three countries have still to deposit their ratifications, Albania, Iran and Nicaragua.

Mr. Day

Could the right hon. Gentleman say if the British Government, in conjunction with other Powers, have taken any steps to obtain the ratification of those Powers?

Mr. Eden

I am afraid I could not.
