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.
