LONDON, April 2. Mr Kughes is not convinced, of the practicability of the Labour Convention without- radical alterations. Its machinery is unworkable, and the method of its constitution is unlikely to commend it to colonial workers. .He says it seems unlikely that the workers will view favourably Government representation on the conferences, but while the Convention makes it necessary •■for a State to submit the Conferences recommendations to its Legislature, State representation is essential. Again, the fact that Japan, with her cheap labour, refuses to accept the Convention, at any rate for a period of years, raises a situation that the workers in other lands can hardly subscribe to. However, the Convention is likely to be thoroughly discussed and modified before the Conference adopts it, and criticism may, perhaps, be premature.
