HC Deb 24 February 1919 vol 112 cc1410-1W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the working hours of the storehouse staff of the Army Ordnance Department at Woolwich Arsenal were reduced by special departmental order issued in January from 48 to 47 hours; and whether, seeing that the storehouse staff of the department employed at the depots at Poplar, Royal Albert Docks, Lambeth, and Greenwich have been treated throughout the War upon the same footing as the staff at Woolwich Arsenal, the concession as to reduction of hours will be granted to them?

Captain GUEST

An announcement on this subject will be made shortly.
