HC Deb 11 April 1935 vol 300 c1310
10. Mr. THORNE

asked the Minister of Labour whether he can state the reason why all the women cleaners at the employment exchanges who work less than 48 hours per week have been refused an advance in wages; whether he is aware that those working 42 and 44 hours per week are not deemed to be full-time employés; and whether his Department are taking the case before the industrial court for a ruling?


No change in the rates of pay or conditions of service of women cleaners in employment exchanges is under consideration. There have been certain changes in connection with male cleaners, and if that is what the hon. Member has in mind perhaps he will communicate with me.
