Senator PEARCE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - I doubt if the Congress referred to by the honorable senator is an official body. I understand that it is an unofficialgathering.

Senator Duncan - Australian delegates are attending it.

Senator PEARCE - It is not in any way associated with the League of Nations, but is merely a body representative of certain trade union and political Labour organizations. It does not seem, therefore, that there is any way in which the Commonwealth Government, as such, tan put its views before that congress. The view of the Government on this very important question has always been adequately stated.
