HC Deb 13 March 1894 vol 22 cc151-2
MR. HANBURY (Preston)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War at what Government Factories the system of an eight hours day is now in force, and to what departments of those factories it does not apply; whether any, and if so what, alterations have been made as to limiting the usual times of grace, reducing the rate of pay for overtime, and abolishing pay altogether on Government holidays and other days for which wages have hitherto been paid; what reductions have been made in the system of sick pay; and whether any addition has been made to the piecework rate?


I must ask the hon. Gentleman to wait until Friday, when the Army Estimates come on, and I will then give him full information on the subject.


Will the Ordnance Factory Vote be taken with the Army Votes?


It always goes with them.
