§ 2. Sir Francis Fremantle
asked the Minister of Labour how far action has been secured to limit hours of labour to the optimum for efficiency, as recommended in his circular of July last, respectively, in factories carrying out Government contracts and in private factories?
§ Mr. Assheton
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply on this subject which my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for the Consett Division (Mr. David Adams) on 20th February.
§ Sir F. Fremantle
As a certain period has elapsed since then, can my hon. Friend say how far this pressure has proceeded and had any effect?
