HC Deb 14 August 1919 vol 119 c1672W
Major E. WOOD

asked the Minister of Labour whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce legislation to deal with the question of night work in the baking trade; and, if so, when?


Yes, Sir. A Bill is being prepared to give effect to the recommendations of the Committee of Inquiry into night baking. It will be introduced as soon as Parliamentary business permit, and if there be undue delay in its introduction, this fact will be taken into account in fixing the period of grace before the Act becomes operative, which was recommended by the Committee.
