HC Deb 16 May 1966 vol 728 c162W
42. Mr. Stainton

asked the Minister of Labour if he will list the average length of the working day in the road haulage industry in 1964, 1965 and the expected length for 1966.

Mr. Gunter

This information is not available. My Department collects information about weekly hours. In 1964 and 1965 these varied between 56 and 57 hours per week for adult male workers in the road haulage contracting industry. Since the number of days worked in any week will vary it is not possible to draw any conclusion from these figures as to the length of the working day.
