Mr. MURDOCK:

My hon. friend is not fully informed, then. One of the difficulties that Geneva reports in the matter of securing ratification of these conventions is that in some particular respect the convention may be objectionable to certain nations. For instance, some nations have indicated readiness to ratify a convention if some slight changes are made in it, but that has not under the regulations so far been permitted, although a proposal i? being considered under which that may be possible later. It is the desire of the international labour office that there shall be uniformity in ratification.
