No, Sir. I hardly think it necessary for the Department to be officially represented. We shall, in due course, have the opportunity of studying a report of the proceedings.

Does that mean that, with the single exception of this country, practically every country in Europe is to be represented?

As a matter of fact practically all the questions on Agenda Paper of the Congress are outside the purview of the Home Office, and I would remind my hon. Friend that, now that we have International Labour Conferences, there is not the same necessity for the Home Office to be represented at this kind of Congress.
