§ 28. Major ENTWISTLE
asked the Prime Minister if he intends to carry out the recommendation made by the general conference of the International Labour Organisation of the League of Nations concerning the limitation of hours of work in the fishing industry; and, if so, at what date?
42. Sir J. D. REES
asked the Prime Minister whether the International Labour Organisation of the League of Nations has proposed limitations of the hours of work in the fishing industry; and whether the Government will abstain from accepting any recommendation dealing with an industry carried on under widely differing conditions in the seven seas and well able to look after itself in all of them?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Sir R. SANDERS (Lord of the Treasury)
I have been asked to answer this question. The recommendation referred to is under the consideration of the Government, and I am not in a position to make any statement at the present moment.
