Chapter Summary

The signatory States, recognising the grave evils that may result from the employment of forced labour, except for essential public services, engage that, where it is necessary for special reasons to admit the employment of forced labour, they will take all necessary precautions, particularly where the labourers belong to the less advanced races, to prevent conditions analogous to these of slavery from resulting from such employment. That forced labour appeared as the third provision of the 1925 Draft Protocol points to its importance. In introducing the Protocol, Viscount Cecil of Chelwood noted that with regard to Article 3, "forced labour did in fact not go as far as the report of the [Temporary] Slavery Commission recommended. The provisions related to forced labour were the most contentious of the British Protocol as they worked their way through the process of being re-drafted for inclusion in the 1925 Draft Convention.
