HC Deb 29 May 1941 vol 371 cc2006-7W
Mr. Windsor

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that a recent conference of the Confederation of Shipbuilding and Engineering Unions reported that much discomfort and weariness had been caused to shipyard workers by the absence of adequate welfare facilities, by the lack of canteens, by the non-provision of accommodation where workmen can eat with reasonable comfort, and by other disabilities; and whether he has any statement to make on the matter?

Mr. Bevin

I have not seen this report, but arrangements for obtaining and taking meals at shipyards are being largely improved. If the Confederation will send me particulars of the cases in which inadequate welfare facilities or other disabilities are complained of, I will have them investigated.
