§ 32. Mr. Denman
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether the Conditions of Employment Act, 1936, has yet come into operation in the Irish Free State; and whether he will endeavour to obtain a report on the advantages or disadvantages which have so far been revealed by the 40-hour week for young persons with a view to the preparation of similar Measures by His Majesty's Government in this country?
Mr. M. MacDonald
I understand that the Act to which my hon. Friend refers came into force in the Irish Free State on 29th May, 1936. As regards the second part of his question, I am asking the Irish Free State Government whether there is any information which can conveniently be supplied regarding the operation of the provisions of the Act.
