HC Deb 19 November 1940 vol 365 c1870W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will take steps, by issuing a leaflet or otherwise, to make it clear both to employers and to work-people that the provisions of the Factories Act remain in operation and are being enforced, except in so far as relaxations are expressly permitted by the competent authority?

Mr. E. Bevin

An announcement to this effect was made at the end of last July by a leaflet and in other ways, and I have no evidence that a further leaflet or announcement is needed. Factory managements generally would appear to be well aware of the position.
