HC Deb 24 June 1926 vol 197 c547
64. Mr. SNELL

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the Government of India has adopted and enforced the recommendation concerning unemployment insurance for seamen, submitted to the members of the International Labour Organisation for consideration by the second session of the International Labour Organisation at Genoa in July, 1920; and whether he has received any representations on the subject from the Indian Seamen's Union?


The answer to both parts of the question is in the negative. The Indian Legislature recommended that no action should be taken, the question of unemployment among Indian seamen not being at present of practical importance.
