HC Deb 28 June 1937 vol 325 cc1623-4
8. Mr. Day

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will give particulars of the latest reports received from His Majesty's Consul-General at Loanda on the economic conditions in Angola, with special reference to the system of forced labour for private profit that is in operation in that country?

Mr. Eden

I would refer the hon. Member to the report on economic conditions in Angola for the year 1936 by His Majesty's Consul-General at Loanda which has been published. I have received no recent reports on the subject referred to in the second part of the question.

Mr. Day

Will the Minister ask for a further report with regard to this matter?

Mr. Eden

I think we must wait.
