§ 16. Mr. BURKE
asked the Minister of Labour whether he can give any information on the negotiations regarding the application of the 40-hour week in the textile industry; whether His Majesty's Government is prepared to give technical advice; and what is the attitude of the employers' associations concerned?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on 27th February to a similar question by the hon. Member for Mansfield (Mr. C. Brown).
§ Mr. ELLIS SMITH
Will the Minister expedite the publication of his promised report, in view of the fact that this matter must come up at Geneva within three months for ratification
