HC Deb 17 July 1940 vol 363 cc226-7W
Mr. Mander

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will give examples of some of the principal rates and conditions of payment covering works managers, managers, salaried staff employés of clerical, typing and messenger grades in establishments under his control with regard to payment for overtime for work on Saturday afternoons and Sundays beyond the normal hours?

Mr. Alexander

The rates and conditions of payment of overtime for Admiralty headquarters staff and for clerical and typing staff in outport establishments are the same as those universal throughout the Government Service. In a few establishments set up since the outbreak of war overtime is payable for time worked in excess of hours fixed by local agreement. Admiralty Works Managers and Managers are almost invariably Principal Officers who are not entitled to overtime payment. As the table of examples is long, I am sending the hon. Member a copy privately.
