§ 37. Major HENDERSON
asked the Secretary of State for War why male civilian subordinates require to perform forty-five hours' work per week before they are qualified for overtime, whilst female civilian subordinates are so qualified after performing forty-two hours' work per week?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I understand the question to refer to clerical staffs. I think the hon. and gallant Member will agree that it is not asking too much to require a slightly longer normal working week from men. The rates paid take account of the hours worked.
