§ 24. Colonel Lord HENRY CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Minister of Munitions whether the women workers in Messrs. Vickers' works at Erith are still working on the ten-hour day and night shift system; and whether, in view of the effect on the health of the workers and loss of output involved in this system, he will exercise his powers under the Munitions Act and reduce the length of the shifts?
§ Dr. ADDISON
The Department have under consideration the system of two ten-hour shifts on which the women workers at Messrs. Vickers', Erith, are still working, but have not yet arrived at a decision on the question.
