HC Deb 14 March 1940 vol 358 c1398W
95. Mr. Mathers

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will take into account the protests against the revocation of the order providing for the early closing of shops which have been sent to him from Scotland; and take steps to ensure that shopworkers' hours will not exceed 48 per week?

Mr. Colville

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on 13th March to a Question on this subject by the hon. and learned Member for Greenock (Mr. R. Gibson) and to the reply given to-day by the Home Secretary to Questions by the right hon. Member for Kirkcaldy (Mr. Kennedy) and the hon. Member for Springburn (Mrs. Hardie).
