HC Deb 30 June 1926 vol 197 c1170W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received from the Secretary-General of the League of Nations a copy of the Draft Slavery Convention presented to the Sixth Assembly, and referred by it to the Governments, together with several other proposals made by the Norwegian delegate; if so, whether His Majesty's Government have replied; and to what effect?


The answer to the first and second parts of the hon. Member's question is in the affirmative. The reply of His Majesty's Government, which it is understood will shortly be published by the League of Nations, was mainly directed to suggesting improvements in the drafting of the Convention; it also expressed the hope that it would not be found necessary to amend the draft Convention in any manner which might lessen its efficacy.
