§ MR. ELLIOTT LEES (Oldham)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether any, and if so what, legislative action has yet , been taken by any Foreign Government to carry out any of the reccommendations of the Berlin Conference upon labour questions; and whether any system analogous to what is known as "the half-time system" exists in any foreign country?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. H SMITH, Strand, Westminster)
The information asked for by the hon. Member is still in course of collection, and I regret, therefore, I am not yet in a position to give him particulars. If he will kindly repeat his question in about 14 days' time, I hope to be then in possession of full information.
