§ 15. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of Stab for Foreign Affairs when and where the next meeting of the International Penal and Penitentiary Commission will take place; what will be its agenda; what nations will be represented at it and in what proportions; and what will the British representation be.
§ Mr. Bevin.
Under present arrangements the next meeting of the International Penal and Penitentiary Commission is due to be held at Berne in August 1948. This meeting is so far distant that an agenda has not yet been circulated and it is not known what nations will be represented and what United Kingdom representation will be.
§ 16. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware of the contrast between the precept and practice of the administration of justice in Spain; that this practice is inconsistent with the principles of modern penology; if he will bring this to the notice of the International Penal and Penitentiary Commission, of which Great Britain is a member; and if he will urge other members of that commission to exclude Spain from its membership.
