HC Deb 17 May 1934 vol 289 cc1948-9
35. Mr. T. SMITH (for Mr. HICKS)

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if his attention has been drawn to the practice of the Galloway Water Power Company in permitting excessive overtime and Sunday work on their contracts, notwithstanding protests by the Stewartfy County Council which contended that proper and sufficient relays of additional men should be engaged so as not to interfere with the gangs working on week-days; and whether he is prepared to make representations to the company in regard to this matter?


I have not received any representations on the matter to which the hon. Member refers, but I am making inquiries of the company and will communicate with him as soon as possible.
