§ 36. Major Sir ARCHIBALD SINCLAIR
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what European members of the League of Nations have ratified the Eight Hours Convention; and what other nations have undertaken to ratify it if Great Britain will do so?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. Betterton)
I have been asked to reply. The Washington Hours Convention has been ratified unconditionally by Belgium, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Greece and Rumania. Austria, Italy and Latvia have deposited with the Secretary-General of the League of Nations ratifications which will only become operative on ratification by certain other States, of which Great Britain is one.
