HC Deb 20 March 1930 vol 236 c2121W

asked the Secretary of State for India details of the proposed Bill presented to the Assembly recently dealing with hours of work and weekly rest-day for workers in India?


I presume that my hon. Friend is referring to the Indian Railways (Amendment) Bill. This Bill has been introduced in the Legislative Assembly and referred to a Select Committee, which has proposed certain amendments. I have no information as to what has happened since the Select. Committee's report was presented. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the Bill as amended by the Select Committee.
