HC Deb 01 May 1962 vol 658 cc140-1W
Mr. Wade

asked the Lord Privy Seal, if he will instruct the representatives of Her Majesty's Government at the United Nations to make further proposals to secure the enforcement of anti-slavery conventions.

Mr. Heath

The question of slavery is on the agenda of the next Session of the Economic and Social Council, which takes place in Geneva in July. The United Kingdom delegation will again take the initiative, as it has done at previous sessions, in urging members of the United Nations that have not already done so to accede to the Convention and to co-operate in carrying out its terms.
