§ 34. Mr. McNulty
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will make a statement on the outcome of the recent International Labour Organisation conference. 
§ Mr. Andrew Smith
This year's International Labour conference was a successful event in which the UK played a positive and constructive part. When I addressed the conference, I set out the Government's commitment to the promotion of basic labour standards and our support for the ILO Director-General's vision of universal respect for fundamental human rights in the workplace. There was unanimous approval of my announcement concerning the restoration of trade union rights at GCHQ.
