106. Mr. Crouch

asked the Minister of Labour how many man hours were lost as a result of the recent gas strike in London.

Mr. Isaacs

Statistics of man-hours lost through industrial stoppages are not compiled. The number of man-days lost at various gas works in London, Essex and Middlesex, as a result of the stoppage of work between 16th September and 7th October was about 28,000. Nearly 3,000 man-days were also lost in the stoppage of work at some of these establishments on 1st and 2nd September.
