18. Mr. CREECH JONES
asked the Home Secretary whether the Government have given recent consideration to the ratification of the Workmen's Compensation (Occupational Diseases) Convention (Revised), 1934, No. 62; and when it is proposed that the Convention should be ratified?
§ Under SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir John Simon)
The Government propose to ratify this Convention, and the formalities for ratification are now being carried out.
19. Mr. JONES
asked the Home Secretary whether he will now consider, with a view to ratification, the Workmen's Compensation (Accidents) Convention, 1925 (No. 17)?
§ Sir J. SIMON
I am advised that this Convention could not be ratified without far-reaching changes in the law and medical arrangements of this country, and I see no prospect of such legislation being passed at present.
