HC Deb 04 July 1927 vol 208 c862
32. Mr. LEE

asked the Secretary for Mines whether the Department is receiving any complaints from any part of the British coalfield respecting men being kept at work for longer than the eight hours allowed by the Eight Hours Act?

Colonel LANE FOX

The only complaint that I have received recently is that men working on Sunday night shift at a particular pit in Scotland are returning to work again on Monday afternoon before the expiration of the interval which the law requires.
