§ 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?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
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.
§ Major COLFOX
When, if ever, is any progress likely to be made with the Bill for the ratification of the Washington Hours Convention?
