§ 69. Mr. A. M. SAMUEL
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the amount of overtime earned recently by clerks employed to deal with the work under the Cinematograph Act, and the number of hours worked a day by clerks in other departments; and whether he will arrange for the transfer of clerks from departments in which there is a shortage of work to departments where the staff is overworked?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
So far as I am aware, the administration of the Act referred to has not recently given rise to the employment of civil servants on overtime.
§ Mr. SAMUEL
Is the hon. Member aware that the statement that a large amount of overtime was being earned under this Act was made by a delegate from Camberwell at a conference of young Liberals at Chester on 21st April last?
