HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 c1506
13. Mr. Day

asked the Prime Minister particulars of the latest report received by the Council of the League of Nations respecting the reforms recommended by the commission of inquiry into slavery and forced labour in Liberia; and what progress for the suppression of slavery in that country has been made since the delivery of the report?

Mr. Butler

The Council of the League of Nations has received no recent reports on this subject. The Liberian Government have passed the necessary laws for the abolition of slavery, and I have no reason to believe that they are not being enforced.

Mr. Day

Was the invitation of the United States to co-operate ever accepted?

Mr. Butler

I should require notice of that question.

Forward to
