HC Deb 14 October 1943 vol 392 c1061W
Mr. Robertson

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has considered the case of Miss Hedgcock, a 20-year old employee of a firm of insurance brokers at Amersham who, for six months, has endeavoured to secure her release so that she may take up nursing or join the Forces; and what is the reason for her continued deferment in employment where the maximum number of hours never exceeds 36 per week, and where the employees are free each week-end from 5 p.m. on Fridays until 11 a.m. on Mondays?

Mr. Bevin

I am having inquiries made into this case and will write to my hon. Friend
