HC Deb 05 June 1930 vol 239 c2359
23. Mr. THORNE

asked the Minister of Labour whether she has any information in regard to the ratifying of the Washington Eight-Hours Convention by the Argentine Government; and, if so, whether she can state the changes made in regard to overtime of workers for Sundays and public holidays, dangerous and unhealthy occupations, and night work?


According to my present information, the Argentine Government has not yet ratified the Washington Convention. I understand that an Act has been passed regarding hours of work, and that regulations putting the Act into force (with some exceptions) have recently been made. I have not sufficient information to enable me to answer the detailed points raised in the second half of the question.


When, if ever, is any progress likely to be made with the Bill for the ratification of the Washington Hours Convention?
