HC Deb 24 February 1938 vol 332 cc584-5W
Mr. Riley

asked the Minister of Labour whether he can specify the industries in Great Britain in which agreements have been reached since December, 1936, to date, to establish annual holidays with pay, and the approximate number of persons affected by such agreements?

Mr. E. Brown

I am sending to the hon. Member a statement containing a list of the collective agreements, providing for holidays with pay, reported to my Department as having been arrived at by organisations of employers and workpeople since December, 1936. It is estimated that the number of workpeople covered by these agreements is about 1¼ million.
