§ Mr. Benn
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what action has been taken by his Department in the last five years to encourage colonial administrations to circulate the Declaration of Human Rights and advance its implementation by discussion through schools and colleges; and with what results.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
No action of the sort referred to has been taken in the last five years, but as my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State said on 3rd July in answer to a previous Question on this subject, the Declaration was brought to the notice of colonial Governors when it was first drawn up and will be recalled to their attention this year in connection with its tenth anniversary.
