HC Deb 04 November 1943 vol 393 c837
6. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give further information as to the progress of the establishment of the Advisory Committee on the Economic Conditions of Post-War Reconstruction, in view of his announcement that he would discuss the matter with the acting director of the I.L.O. during his visit to this country?

Mr. Bevin

I understand that arrangements are under consideration for a meeting of the Governing Body of the I.L.O., or of the Emergency Committee of the Governing Body, at an early date, at which it may be assumed that the decision to which my hon. Friend refers and other questions of policy will be discussed.

Mr. Shinwell

Has my right hon. Friend met the acting director of the I.L.O.?

Mr. Bevin

Yes, I had some personal conversations with him. But those conversations must be reported to the Governing Body before I can deal with them anywhere else.
