§ The Minister of Supply (Sir Andrew Duncan)
One hundred and nine men and 15 women in the grades of engineer, assistant grade I and assistant grade II are employed on time and motion study in the Royal Ordnance Factories. The average age of the men is 36.
§ Mr. Mort
Does the right hon. Gentleman, from his previous experience of industry, consider it necessary to have a separate organisation to perform these functions, and particularly that they should be termed experts when their main qualifications seem to be that they know how to work a stop watch?
§ Mr. A. Edwards
May we expect an early report from the experts at present studying slow motion in the right hon. Gentleman's Department?
