§ Mr. Brockway
asked the Minister of Labour how the British delegations voted on the motion at the International Labour Office conference that the South African workers' delegate should be excluded on the ground that he represented white trades unions only; and if he will circulate in the Official Report an analysis of the 135 votes in favour, the 3 against and the 57 who abstained.
§ Mr. Hare
The minority report of the Credentials Committee of the conference recommended that the conference should refuse to admit the workers' delegate of the Republic of South Africa to the session of the conference which has just ended. The United Kingdom workers' delegate voted in favour of adoption of this report; the Government delegates and the employers' delegates abstained. The details of the vote are set out below.
