HL Deb 23 July 1934 vol 93 cc879-80

Page 4, line 43, at the beginning insert: ("If the occupier of any shop gives notice that he elects that the provisions of this subsection shall not be applicable to that shop then, unless and until the notice is withdrawn, the said provisions Shall not be applicable thereto but as respects business carried on at any shop to which the said provisions are not so rendered inapplicable.")


My Lords, with your Lordships' permission, I will refer to this Amendment and the next together. The occupier can confine his overtime to six weeks in the year, in which case he may employ young persons overtime up to a maximum of twelve hours a week (subject of course to the annual limit of 50 hours overtime for the individual young person). Alternatively, he may employ young persons overtime in any week in the year, but in that case he must not employ any young person for more than eight hours overtime in any period of two consecutive weeks.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Earl of Feversham.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
