HC Deb 27 June 1940 vol 362 c604W
Mr. Mander

asked the Minister of Supply the usual practice in factories under Government control with regard to the payment of office staff when kept working on Saturday afternoons and Sundays?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

In general, employès of clerical, typing and messengerial grades in offices of the Royal Ordnance Factories are eligible for payment on an overtime basis for hours worked on Saturday afternoons and Sundays beyond the normal weekly hours. The rates and conditions of payment, which in most instances are governed by agreements with staff associations or by awards of the Industrial Court, differ as between the various classes of employment.
