§ MR. E. J. C. MORTON (Devonport)
I beg to ask the Civil Lord of the Admiralty whether he can now state when the principle of the eight hours day will be practically applied in the Government Dockyards; and when the scheme by which it is intended to apply it will be published?
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. E. ROBERTSON,) Dundee
The scheme applying the eight hours day to the dockyards has practically been approved by the Board of Admiralty, but certain details remain to be settled. As soon as this has been done the scheme will be promulgated.
