§ 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.
