61. Captain BERKELEY

asked the Minister of Labour what is the policy of His Majesty's Government relative to the ratification of those recommendations and conventions of the International Labour Organisation that have not already been ratified by this country?


The policy of the Government generally is to endeavour in every possible way to raise the prestige of the International Labour Organisation of the League of Nations. With that end in view, they have under consideration each of the conventions and recommendations referred to by the hon. and gallant Member, and announcements as to their intentions with regard to them will be made in due course.
