HC Deb 03 December 1930 vol 245 c2229W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will issue a list of countries where slave and forced labour is employed outside the British Empire, together with the approximate number concerned of males, females, and children?


I am placing in the Library of this House a copy of a publication issued by the International Labour Office, entitled "Forced Labour: Report and Draft Questionnaire; Item 3 on the Agenda of the 12th session of the International Labour Conference, 1929," which contains a comprehensive review of the position. As regards slavery, I fear that no similar official publication exists.
