§ 30. Viscountess ASTOR
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the Government of Denmark has appointed a woman as full voting delegate to the conference on the traffic in women and children which meets in Geneva on 30th June and that the French Government has appointed a woman as alternate delegate; and whether he will again consider the desirability of appointing a woman either as alternate delegate or as technical adviser, so that Great Britain may be as adequately represented as these other countries?
§ Mr. SHORTT
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. I am informed that the French Government has appointed a lady as assistant delegate. I have no information with regard to Denmark. In the circumstances which I explained in my reply to the hon. Member's previous question on the 9th June, I do not consider it necessary to appoint a woman adviser to the British delegation.
§ Viscountess ASTOR
Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that the woman representing France is a Government official, and that we have no official representative there? That is the difference.
