HC Deb 10 February 1937 vol 320 cc380-1
12. Mr. Walkden

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the question of securing the international adoption of a reformed calendar was considered by the League of Nations Council; and, if so, what was the decision?

Viscount Cranborne

On 25th January, the Council recommended to the attention of the Advisory Committee for Communications and Transit a resolution on the subject of calendar reform passed by the International Labour Conference last June. The Chilean representative presented to the Council a draft Convention which was also referred to the Advisory Committee, with the suggestion that it should be brought to the notice of Governments.

Mr. Mabane

Would the Noble Lord pass that question on to the Home Office?

Viscount Cranborne

indicated assent.
