HC Deb 13 March 1924 vol 170 c2533
39. Mr. GROVES

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the 1918 inquiry by a Whitley Council which resolved that night work be abolished in the bread and flour bakeries between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m., with the exception of dough-makers and oven firemen and their assistants, subject to the discussion of the question of Sundays, holidays and break-downs, and the 1919 Departmental Committee appointed by the Minister of Labour, which reported in favour of prohibiting night work, he will be prepared to introduce a Government Bill that will give eflect to these recommendations, thereby abolishing night work in the baking trade?


A proposal for an International Convention to prohibit night baking is on the Agenda of the International Labour Conference which will meet at Geneva in June next, and the question of introducing a Bill will be considered by the Government after that Conference.

Forward to
