HC Deb 03 July 1941 vol 372 c1513W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Labour what action the Government propose to take on the suggestion of the Select Committee on National Expenditure that Sunday labour should be abolished?

Mr. Bevin

I assume that my hon. Friend refers to the Select Committee's report on labour in the aircraft industry. This was considered by the Production Executive and in accordance with their decision the Ministry of Aircraft Production has indicated to its contractors that Sunday work should be discontinued except for the purpose of meeting special emergencies.
