who appreciate the work of the International Labour Office even less than does the average man in England.
Here is an extract from the Canadian Hansard of June 9, on the debate on International Labour Conference Vote, $15,00().
Mr. Church: " I have been following this labour movement for a great many years, and am a strong supporter of union labour, but I fail to see what good these conferences are doing. They seem to provide patronage for the Government with the official set in the trades and labour movement . . I fail to see why we should have these delegations to Geneva. All the countries of Europe send delegates to these meetings, but I cannot find five cents' worth of value in the report . . . 1 know a lot of practical labour men who are politicians and can never get on these trips, and they think they arc of little or no value whatever."
The Minister of Labour, in reply pointed out that the I.L.O. must be of some use as the Canadian Government had from time to time ratified conventions which the I.L.O. had adopted.
