HC Deb 06 March 1912 vol 35 c464

Order read for Second Reading.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read a second time."


I had put down an Amendment for the rejection of the Bill, on the ground that this railway company is now virtually the only railway company in the country that does not give Sunday pay to its clerks. Since I did so, I had an interview with the general manager of the railway, and I understand that the reason that this payment is not given at the present time is because of the financial position of the company. I am told that as soon as the financial position of the company will allow, the directors are agreeable to the payment for Sunday duty, and therefore I do not propose to move my Amendment.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill read a second time, and committed.
