HC Deb 16 July 1931 vol 255 cc781-2

Towards the end of the Debate that ended this morning, I was attempting to draw a distinction between Members of this House whose previous experience had been in industries where holidays were given without pay as against others who had been in employ- ment where holidays had been fixed and paid for. In that respect I understand that I have done the hon. Member for Bridgeton (Mr. Maxton) an injustice. The whole of his career has not been associated with teaching, and, in fact, he has shared some of our industrial experience. I wish, therefore, to apologise to him for having misrepresented him.
