§ 68. Mr. ROBERT RICHARDSON
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when it is proposed to introduce the Bill to give legislative sanction to the proposals regarding the employment of women before and after childbirth which were adopted at the Washington International Labour Conference?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I have been asked to answer this question. The British official representatives at the Washington Conference refrained from voting on this question. The extent to which the British Government shall adhere to the recommendations of the conference is at present under consideration. The matters involved largely affect insurance questions, and they are now being carefully examined.
§ Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
May I ask whether the British representative voted on this matter on instructions from the Government?
