HC Deb 07 May 1924 vol 173 c431

asked the Minister of Health whether he intends that the terms of reference of the Royal Commission on National Insurance will allow for consideration of the possibility of the ratification by this country of the Washington Maternity Convention of the International Labour Office?


I think the terms of reference given in my reply to the hon. Member for West Woolwich (Sir K. Wood), on the 1st May, would enable the recommendations of the Washington Maternity Convention to be considered as regards applicability to the insured population of the country.
