§ MR. HALLEY STEWART (Lincolnshire, Spalding)
On behalf of the hon. Member for the Northwich Division of Cheshire, I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he can state what trades involve incessant day and night work, and can therefore be rightly described as continuous in their nature?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. MUNDELLA,) Sheffield, Brightside
I am unable to give a full and exhaustive list of the trades, and sections of trades, which involve incessant day and night work. My hon. Friend, however, will find a good deal of information on the subject in the volumes issued by the Royal Commission on Labour, giving the replies received from Trade Associations and others to questions submitted by the Commission.
