§ 9. Mr. Rowson
asked the Minister of Labour how many branch managers employed by the Ministry of Labour do not get holidays with pay?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Branch managers are engaged on a part-time basis and the terms of their engagement do not include provision for holidays with pay.
§ Mr. T. Williams
What qualifies a man for an annual holiday with pay? Does it depend on length of service?
§ Mr. Brown
It is not a question of length of service but of a part-time basis and, as the hon. Member knows, that differs according to the local circumstances, because one branch is not necessarily open for the same number of days per week or per month as another branch. That is one of the problems which will come before the committee of inquiry which is to be set up.
§ Mr. Williams
Can the Minister give us any idea of how many part-time branch managers he has who are not established civil servants?
§ 14. Mr. Rowson
asked the Minister of Labour whether he can now state the names of the members of the committee to inquire into the question of holidays with pay; and when they will commence their duties?
