HC Deb 09 October 1924 vol 177 c747W
24. Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has received the Report of the Advisory Committee on Social Hygiene appointed to inquire into measures connected with public morality in the British Colonies in the Fast East?


It has not yet been possible to arrange for a meeting of this Committee. But to avoid misapprehension, it should be stated that the Committee was not appointed to hold an inquiry and present a report, but to advise the Secretary of State in dealing with any questions which he may from time to time refer to it. A report in the ordinary sense is, therefore, not to be expected.

Mr. SPEAKER resumed the Chair at Six o'Clock.
