§ 35. Mr. PALING
asked the Secretary for Mines the approximate number of miners who have returned to work on an eight-hours, seven-and-a-half hours, and a seven-hours day, respectively?
§ Colonel LANE FOX
I have no official figures of the number of men actually at work for a period later than the week ended 27th November. Perhaps the hon. Member will repeat his question next week.
Major the Marquess of TITCHFIELO
Does not the right hon. Gentleman think that this question conclusively proves that the Government never meant the Eight Hours Act to be compulsory?
