§ 2. Mr. A. Evans
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that nearly a year has passed since the Government accepted in principle the recommendations of the Rees Committee on Night Baking, and promised legislation; that this further delay is causing dissatisfaction among master bakers and journeymen; and if he will now table his proposals.
§ 6. Mr. Willey
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will make a further statement on the action he proposes to take upon the recommendations of the Committee on Night Baking.
§ The Minister of Labour (Sir Walter Monckton)
As already indicated, I am anxious to proceed with this as quickly as possible. My Department will shortly be discussing detailed proposals with the trade unions and employers' organisations, and I hope it will be possible to make early progress.
§ Mr. Willey
Would the right hon. and learned Gentleman accept it from me that we are delighted that he is so anxious to get this Measure on the Statute Book, 1652 and that he can rely on our support to get it there as soon as possible?
