HC Deb 30 July 1937 vol 326 c3505
19. Mr. Day

asked the Minister of Labour the results of the inquiries his Department had made into the conditions under which operators and attendants at cinemas are employed; and will he consider appointing a departmental committee for the purpose of investigating these conditions with the object of introducing legislation to regulate them.

The Minister of Labour (Mr. Ernest Brown)

The necessary preparations for this inquiry are in progress, but some considerable time must elapse before the results of the inquiry are available. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to a similar Question by him on 8th July.

Mr. Day

Has not the Minister all the particulars he requires in his office and which were supplied to the Department some years back?

Mr. Brown

Oh, no, Sir, otherwise I should not be making elaborate inquiries in order to get the information full and quite accurate.
