The Council of Europe is based on the principle that each member state is responsible for its use of foreign labour and for determining the number and nature of such workers to meet the needs of its own economy. Therefore, the Council has never assumed the task of organising the free movement of manpower nor of encouraging movements of workers in Europe. However, once these workers are admitted into member states, it is incumbent upon the Council, in conformity with its Statute, to propose to governments measures for their protection and assistance. These measures have been the subject of recommendations to governments by the Committee of Ministers regarding: (1) living, working, and training conditions for migrant workers; (2) human and social problems; and (3) problems arising upon the return of migrant workers to their home country. The Committee of Ministers has adopted 2 resolutions: (1) Resolution (68) 18 -- the teaching of languages to migrant workers and (2) Resolution (70) 35 -- school education for the children of migrant workers. This document consists of reports of the action taken by Italy, Belgium, Sweden, France, and Turkey in response to these resolutions. The resolutions are also given. (Author/NQ)
