HC Deb 05 March 1946 vol 420 cc163-4
39. Mr. Champion

asked the Minister of Labour if he will make arrangements for employers of labour, who normally pay their employees on Fridays, to pay their employees on the Thursday preceding the Whitsun bank holiday, because of the shopping difficulties which will be caused by the declaration of 8th June as a bank holiday.

Mr. Isaacs

This is a matter for arrangement within each industry according to circumstances, and is not one in respect of which I have any powers to intervene, but I have no doubt that employers will take notice of representations made to them.
