HC Deb 20 January 1959 vol 598 c1W
3. Mrs. Castle

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what advantage is being taken, in the territories for which he is responsible, of the seminars on the status of women now being organised by the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.

Mr. Amery

A Regional Seminar on Civic Responsibilities and increased Participation of Asian Women in Public Life was held in Bangkok in August, 1957. Women from Hong Kong, Singapore and Sarawak, attended, as well as from Malaya, which at that date was not yet independent. A further Regional Conference on this subject will be held in Bogota in May, 1959, and all the territories in the Region have been invited to send representatives.
