HC Deb 11 March 1937 vol 321 c1317
19. Mr. Burns

asked the Home Secretary whether he anticipates being able to ratify any of the Conventions of the International Labour Office and the League of Nations as a result of the passage of the Factories Bill now before Parliament?

Sir J. Simon

No, Sir. The Conventions referred to generally deal with other matters besides those which are the subject of factory legislation, and when it is proposed to ratify a Convention requiring fresh statutory provisions, the practice is to introduce special legislation for the purpose.
