HC Deb 17 December 1959 vol 615 c211W
82. Mr. Russell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that Section 17 (1) of the Shops Act, 1950, compels employers who employ part-time assistants in the afternoons only to give them one afternoon's holiday each week but makes no parallel provision for those employed only in the mornings; and if he will amend this Section of the Act so as to make it applicable to full-time employees only.

Mr. Vosper

My right hon. Friend is aware of this point but he is not in a position to undertake to introduce the amending legislation required.
