HC Deb 06 July 1926 vol 197 c1899W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any proposal has been made in the League of Nations Council that Article 6 of the Draft Slavery Convention, referred to the Governments by the last assembly of the League, shall be amended in the direction of a more explicit denunciation of the exaction of forced labour for private profit; and what is the attitude of His Majesty's Government on this question?


So far as I am aware the answer to the first portion of the question is in the negative. Article 6 of the Convention is approved by His Majesty's Government.
