HC Deb 14 March 1912 vol 35 cc1397-8W

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether the lecturers who are at present engaged in explaining the National Insurance Act by means of open-air speeches to employés of the Small Arms Factory during the dinner-hour are speakers from the Insurance Commissioners; and, if so, whether, in view of the shortness of the dinner interval for this purpose, in addition to meal-time he could arrange for a short period being added to the dinner-hour in order to give to all an opportunity of hearing the whole of the speeches delivered without hurrying their meal?


The answer to the first question is in the negative; the second does not therefore arise.
