HC Deb 11 March 1937 vol 321 cc1325-6
39. Mr. Hollins

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider the publication, at his earliest convenience, of a list of firms, and their location, working the two-shift system under the Employment of Women and Young Persons Act, 1936, showing, respectively, the two-shift orders which have not been used during a period of two years and thereby expired, the orders which have not been operative during a period of one year which may be revoked, and other orders remaining in force; and whether he will consider the publication of such a list at least once a year?

Sir J. Simon

The factory inspectors have been instructed to collect information as regards existing orders during the first six months of this year. When their reports are received, I will consider the points raised by the hon. Member and communicate with him in due course.
