HC Deb 10 May 1934 vol 289 c1231
10. Mr. MANDER

asked the Minister of Labour what information he has with reference to the establishment both in this country and abroad of a 40-hour week with or without reduction of wages?


I would refer the hon. Member to recent publications of the International Labour Office on this subject.


Will the hon. Gentleman send me a copy?


Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that the whole of the trade unions connected with the shipbuilding and engineering industry are pressing at the moment for this idea of 40 hours per week without reduction of wages? I would like to ask the representative of the Ministry of Labour what party is opposed to it?
