HC Deb 12 March 1925 vol 181 c1564W

asked the Home Secretary the attitude of the Government with respect to any proposals for the abolition of night-work in the baking trade?


The Government have had this matter under consideration, but before coming to a final decision they have thought it necessary to obtain further information as to whether, and, if so, to what extent, the proposals would be likely to result in an increase in the price of bread. They have accordingly referred this point to the Royal Commission on Retail Prices for special investigation and early report. The position will be further reviewed in the light of the Commission's Report.
