asked the Prime Minister whether the Government has considered the advisability of appointing among its representatives or substitute representatives on the Assembly of the League of Nations, to be held in Geneva in September, some person or persons who may be considered representative of the wage-earners and the women of the country; and who these persons or person are to be?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister stated yesterday, this subject is now being considered in all its bearings, and he hopes to make an announcement before the House rises.
