HC Deb 10 July 1969 vol 786 c278W
23. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what steps are taken to ensure that delegates representing this country at international labour conferences reflect the policy of the Government.

Mr. Fernyhough

All United Kingdom Government delegates to international labour conferences are briefed in the light of existing Governmental policy as it affects each item on the agenda. My hon. Friend will appreciate that the members of the United Kingdom delegation representing employers and workers are in no sense Government representatives.
