HC Deb 10 February 1891 vol 350 cc305-6
MR. WALTER M'LAREN (Cheshire, Crewe)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the desire of the London Tramway Men's Union that their excessive hours of work should be reduced, and that they should form the subject of a Government inquiry; and whether he would include in the duty of the Committee on the Hours of Labour of Railway Servants an inquiry also into the hours of labour of tramway men, or whether he would move for another Committee on that subject?


No, Sir; I have not had any communication on the subject referred to by the hon. Member. I do not propose to ask the House to inquire into the hours of labour of tramway men. The conditions of their employment, and the incidents of their work, differ very largely from those of the employés on railways.

Forward to
