§ 56. Mr. KELLY
asked the Home Secretary the reasons given by the British Enka Artificial Silk Company, Limited, Aintree, the Nuera Art Silk, Limited, Sutton Oak, and the Brysilka, Limited, Apperly Bridge, for the granting of the Order, under Section 2 of the 1920 Act, for the working of the two-shift system by children, young persons, and women; and how many workers are concerned?
§ Sir V. HENDERSON
In all these three cases the object was to increase the output in certain processes in order to keep pace with the output in other processes. Only women and young persons of 16 years of age and over may be employed on the two-shift system. The numbers of such persons expected to be so employed in these cases were 74, 160 and 70 respectively.
