HC Deb 09 July 1959 vol 608 c145W
58. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what reply he has made to the appeal of the East, Central, and Southern Africa Area Committee of the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions to include in all trade and loan agreements and similiar instruments a fair labour clause based on International Labour Office Conventions 87 and 98.

Mr. J. Amery

My right hon. Friend received no such appeal. International Labour Office Conventions 87 and 98 do not, in fact, deal with fair labour clauses, which are the subject of Convention 94. This Convention has been extensively applied without modication in the dependent territories of the United Kingdom.
