HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc420-1W
Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations and the Colonies when the labour laws of Rodriguez were last revised; and what steps he is taking to bring them up to date to comply with international labour conventions.

Mr. Sandys

The Rodrigues Labour Regulations were last amended in November, 1957. The advisability of amending or replacing these regulations has been considered by the Government of Mauritius which has decided to postpone any major change in the labour laws of Rodrigues until the review of Mauritius labour legislation currently being undertaken has been completed.
