§ 3. Mr. SNOWDEN
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty it the men employed in the laboratory at Bull Point Arsenal, Devonport, are working only the ordinary hours; if so, is this due to the unwillingness of the men to work overtime or to the fact that there is no demand for their services beyond the requirements of peace times; and will he take steps to utilise the services of these men in a larger measure than is done at present?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The majority of the men at Bull Point have been working overtime since the beginning of the War, but there has been a certain degree of fluctuation in the amount of work in the laboratory, though of course eve-y man has done a full week's work. There has been no unwillingness on the part of the men and their services are fully appreciated.
