§ 10. Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the Home Secretary if he can give a list of the textile factories, with names and addresses, where the double shift of work is in operation under amending legislation passed during the late War?
§ Sir V. HENDERSON
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer to the question asked on this subject by the hon. Member for Rochdale (Mr. Kelly) on Monday last. Two Shift. Orders are made under Section 2 of the Employment of Women, Young Persons and Children Act. of 1920, and since that Section came into force, Orders have been made in respect of about 160 textile works. I could not, however, say without special inquiries which of these works are in fact operating the system at the present time.
