asked the Minister of Labour the nature of the obligations imposed upon member States of the League of Nations in regard to their representation at the International Labour Office of the League of Nations; and whether there is any means of ensuring that the workmen's representatives on any of the commissions of the International Labour Office shall be given facilities by their respective Governments for attending at Geneva when their presence is necessary in the interest of the workmen they are authorised to represent?
