HC Deb 21 March 1917 vol 91 c1913
88. Mr. CROOKS

asked the Minister of Munitions whether the examiners in the carriage inspection department, Royal Arsenal, Woolwhich, are not being employed full time; can he state the reason for this; and whether the examiners will be allowed to transfer to some other department where their services can be more fully utilised?


At the present time all examiners in the carriage inspection department are working full normal hours. Owing to a temporary decrease in the amount of work, Sunday work has been discontinued, and, to a certain extent, overtime. This staff is specially skilled in carriage inspection, and, in view of anticipated increase in the work, it is not desirable that it should be dispersed.
