HC Deb 03 August 1939 vol 350 cc2677-8W
Mr. Windsor

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn to the conditions under which women are being called upon to work at the Auxiliary Territorial Service's camp at Felixstowe; that serious complaints have been made regarding excessive hours of work and lack of time off for recreation and other purposes; and whether he will have inquiry made into the matter?

Sir V. Warrender

Sixteen members of the 41st East Riding Company, Auxiliary Territorial Service, are in camp at Felixstowe with the East Riding Heavy Regiment, Royal Artillery, Territorial Army. They are affiliated to this unit and asked to be allowed to accompany them to camp. Inquiries have been made, and it has been ascertained that the hours of work are not excessive, and that these volunteers are enjoying the experience.
