§ SIR J. GORST (Cambridge University)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the principle of limiting the hours of labour to 48 per week, which is to be applied to the Ordnance Factories and Arsenals under the War Office, will be extended by Her Majesty's Government to the Royal Dockyards?
§ MR. E. ROBERTSON
(who replied) said: This matter will be considered on the Petitions of the workmen themselves, which are now receiving attention.
§ SIR J. GORST
Then do I understand that the workmen have petitioned for a system of 48 hours a week?
