§ MR. CUNINGHAME GRAHAM (Lanarkshire, N.W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he has made inquiries into the fact of the granting of an eight-hours day by the Gas Companies of London, as stated in the public prints; and if he is now prepared to grant similar privileges to the gas stokers employed in Government workshops?
§ * THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE,) Lincolnshire, Horncastle
No, Sir; I have not made inquiry.
§ MR. C. GRAHAM
As the matter is of considerable importance to those employed, will the right hon. Gentleman make inquiry?
§ * MR. E. STANHOPE
I am not aware that it is the fact that the Gas Companies of London have granted an eight hours' day. If it is necessary I will be glad to make inquiry.
