§ Mr. MANDER
asked the Minister of Labour the definition of the work dealt with by the trade board concerning stamped or pressed metal ware; and whether an extension will be considered in suitable cases?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
The definition of this trade is set out in the Trade Boards (Stamped or Pressed Metal Wares) Order, 255W 1924. I am sending the hon. Member a copy, together with an explanatory circular issued when the Order was made. As regards the last part of the question, I should wish to know more precisely what kind of extension is suggested before I could give a definite answer. No extension of the definition of this trade is under consideration at the present time.
