HC Deb 25 July 1968 vol 769 c208W
Sir B. Rhys Williams

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what steps she now proposes to take to encourage the more efficient employment of industrial capital through the wider adoption of shiftwork.

Mr. Harold Walker

Advice from Government sources on means of increasing productivity is available to industry through the Industrial Relations Advisory Service of my Department, the Industrial Liaison Centres of the Ministry of Technology and through such agencies as the British Productivity Council. My Department's new Manpower and Productivity Service will give additional encouragement. Where appropriate the introduction or extension of shift working is and will be recommended.
