§ MR. CHANNING (Northampton, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the Board of Trade have now ordered the Return of instances in which railway servants have worked for more than 10 hours in any one day during the month of November, 1890, and of the number of instances in which railway servants, after working over 10 hours in any one day, have been called upon to resume duty without having rested eight hours?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Sir M. HICKS BEACH, Bristol, W.)
Yes, Sir. In consequence of the opinion which I found to prevail among the Committee upstairs, I have called for such a Return for the month of December last.
