§ Mr. NEWMAN
asked whether complaints have been made to the superintendent at the Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield, by those employed in the workshops relative to the temperature at which such workshops have recently been maintained; and whether, seeing that on several recent occasions such temperature has not been below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, steps will be taken to provide for a higher temperature?
§ Mr. HALDANE
A complaint was made on 5th March by the secretary of the Employés' Union. A new scheme for steam heating has been in progress for some months and will shortly be completed and meanwhile gas will be used to prevent the temperature falling too low when steam is not available.
