§ The following Question stood upon the Order Paper in the name of Mr. SIDNEY SHEPHARD:
§ 51. To ask the Minister of Labour if he is aware that in Midland factories the output per man hour is showing a downward trend since the four-day working week was introduced in October; and if he will endeavour to institute a five-day week whilst still avoiding power cuts.
§ Mr. Scollan
On a point of Order. Is it in order for this Question to be passed without some answer, as it obviously has very great propaganda value?
§ Mr. Speaker
Whether it carries propaganda value or not, it was in Order apparently, because it passed the Table. It was not asked, and I have no comment to make.
