§ Dr. CHAPPLE
asked the Secretary for Foreign Affairs if he will lay upon the Table the Protocole de Cloture of the Third Opium Conference, which was signed by the plenipotentiaries of thirty Powers at The Hague on 25th June last; and whether Great Britain has yet ratified the Convention of 1912?
§ Sir E. GREY
I will consider the question of laying the Protocol, with the Report of the British delegates to the Conference when I have received this Report and have had time to consider it. His Majesty's ratification of the Opium Convention was duly deposited on 15th July.
