§ 80. Mr. LAWSON
asked the Minister of Labour whether the Government have arrived at a decision in respect to the Hours Convention; and, if so, the nature of that decision?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The second part of the question therefore does not arise.
§ Mr. LAWSON
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that some of the employers in the cotton industry have given notice to end the 49-hours week agreement, and will the Government bear that in mind before they arrive at a decision?
