41. Mr. J. JONES
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware that in February last representations were made to his Department in favour of a reduction in the working hours of employes in the. Royal Parks from fifty-one to forty-seven per week; whether these representations have yet been considered; and whether he is now in a position to state the result?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Sir A. Mond)
This question with others relating to service in the Royal Parks has been receiving the careful consideration of my Department, and I hope soon to be in a position to recommend to the Treasury a scheme which will ensure to all men concerned an average week of forty-eight hours.
