HC Deb 20 June 1940 vol 362 c256W
Mr. Gledhill

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury when he proposes to extend the seven day working week to all employés in Government Departments?

Captain Crookshank

In the case of Departments closely linked with the war effort staff are on duty all seven days of the week. It is, however, the normal practice of Departments, in accordance with the policy announced by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour and National Service on 13th June, to allow individuals one day off in every week.
