HC Deb 14 July 1938 vol 338 cc1493-4
19. Mr. J. J. Davidson

asked the Minister of Labour the total number of hours the Ministry of Labour Pavilion at the Glasgow Empire Exhibition is open per week, and the number of employés at this pavilion?

Mr. E. Brown

The Ministry of Labour Pavilion at the Empire Exhibition at Glasgow is open for 73½ hours per week. The number of staff employed is three, and they work on a relay system.

Mr. Davidson

Can the Minister assure us that the relay system keeps any of these employés from working more than 48 hours a week?

Mr. Brown

I understand that each individual works about 44 hours a week, but I shall be glad to make special inquiries.
