§ Sir W. COLLINS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many of the forty-four signatory Powers to the International Opium Convention of 1912 have now deposited their ratifications; which of the signatory Powers have neither ratified the Convention nor ex- 592W pressed their willingness to do so; and which of the signatory and ratifying Powers have, up to the present, signed the special Protocol prepared at the instance of the third International Conference in 1914, indicating their readiness to-put the Convention into force?
§ Lord R. CECIL
The position has not changed in any of the respects referred to, so far as His Majesty's Government are aware, since the issue of White Paper, Miscellaneous, No. 4 (1915), in February, 1915.
