HC Deb 09 November 1950 vol 480 c86W
107. Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Labour how many people have had their weekly working hours reduced since the end of the war; what has been the average reduction of working hours per week; how many people have been granted holidays with pay; and for how many hours per annum.

Mr. Isaacs

Since August, 1945, about 8+ million wage-earners have had their normal weekly working hours reduced by about three hours on the average. Similar information is not available of the number of wage-earners who have been granted holidays with pay since that date or of the number of hours per annum for which payment is made.
