HC Deb 06 August 1912 vol 41 cc2930-1W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will give the following information with respect to the clerks employed by the National Insurance Commissioners in Glasgow, the total number of clerks employed, male and female, both, regular and temporary, their hours of employment for each day during a full working week, and the times on the several days of the week at which work was begun and ended?


I assume this question to refer to the Labour Exchanges and Unemployment Insurance service for which the Board of Trade are responsible. The total number of permanent and temporary clerks employed in the Glasgow Divisional Office is about 195, namely, 116 male and 79 female. Their conditions of service were stated in the reply given by my right hon. Friend to the hon. Member on 8th July last. The ordinary hours of work are eight, but a consider- able amount of overtime has recently been worked owing to great pressure. I regret that I am not at present in a position to give the further particulars asked for, but if the hon. Member so desires I will endeavour to obtain them and will communicate the result to the hon. Member.
