§ 25. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement on the position of Her Majesty's Government in regard to the World Employment Conference.
§ Mr. John Grant
I attended the World Employment Conference on 11th June and made it clear that Her Majesty's Government recognise the gravity of the world-wide unemployment situation and488W accept the general principle of the basic needs approach outlined in the document "Employment Growth and Basic Needs: a One-World Problem", although with a certain number of reservations.
I have laid a copy of my speech in the Library.
