Hon. JAMES MURDOCK (Minister of Labour):
Mr. Speaker, I beg to lay on the
table of the House the authentic text of a recommendation concerning communication to the International Labour office of statistical and other information regarding emigration, immigration and the repatriation and transit of emigrants which was adopted by the International Labour Conference at its fourth session in Genoa, October 18, to November 3, 1922.
No draft conventions were adopted at this session of the conference and the only recommendation was the one to which I have just referred.
I may add, with reference to the recent inquiry of the right hon. leader of the Opposi-
tion (Mr. Meighen) on this subject, that the authentic text of this recommendation reached the Labour department on March 26. The same is being brought before parliament in conformity with the requirements of paragraph 8 of article 405 of the Treaty of Versailles and the analogous provisions of the other treaties of peace.
