HC Deb 21 July 1915 vol 73 c1470

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?


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.
