HC Deb 19 February 1931 vol 248 c1476W

asked the Minister of Labour when it is proposed to ratify the Forced Labour Convention on behalf of Great Britain and the non-self-governing dependencies; and what other European Powers have already ratified this convention?


As regards the intentions of the Government towards this convention, I would refer to the answer I gave on 18th December to the hen. Member for Huddersfield (Mr. J. Hudson). I am sending a copy of that answer to the right hon. and gallant Gentleman. So far as I am aware, no European Power has yet ratified the convention.
