§ 11. Mr. James Hall
asked the Minister of Labour why the draft convention adopted by the International Labour Office in 1929, in relation to the marking of the weight on heavy packages transported by vessels, has not been ratified by this country?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on nth February of this year to the hon. Member for Central Kingston-upon-Hull (Mr. Windsor). At the session of the Governing Body of the International Labour Organisation in October last it was decided that the Office should prepare a report for the consideration of the Governing Body setting out the results of the inquiries referred to in my previous reply.
