HC Deb 31 July 1923 vol 167 cc1277-8

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether legislation will be introduced to carry out the requirements of the Draft Convention on white lead adopted at the International Labour Conference in 1921 and whether the Government proposes to ratify this Convention?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. G. Locker-Lampson)

The Home Secretary regrets he can add nothing at the moment to the replies given to previous questions on this subject. He hopes to be able to announce the decision of the Government when the House reassembles in the autumn.
