Report VII B(1)

Withdrawal of one international labour Convention

This report contains a questionnaire which, in accordance with Article 45bis(2) of the Standing Orders of the International Labour Conference, calls for a reply from Governments, after consultation with the most representative organizations of employers and workers. The replies to the questionnaire will form the basis of the background report for the ILC discussion in 2021. They must reach the Office no later than 30 November 2020. The abrogation of eight international labour Conventions and withdrawal of nine international labour Conventions and 11 international labour Recommendations was placed on the agenda of the 109th Session of the Conference originally scheduled for June 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governing Body decided to defer the 109th Session from June 2020 to June 2021. In addition, it decided that the withdrawal of the Fee-Charging Employment Agencies Convention, 1933 (No. 34) would be considered, as originally scheduled, in June 2021.
