HC Deb 05 May 1924 vol 173 cc38-9

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in considering the hours of labour and remuneration paid to stokers employed in His Majesty's prisons, he will arrange that the maximum working-week shall not exceed 48 hours?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Arthur Henderson)

The men employed have been invited to express an opinion on the point. If, as a result, they continue to work for more than 48 hours a week, they will be allowed either extra pay or equivalent leave during the summer.
