§ Mr. MacArthur
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works if he will make a statement on the discussions which took place at the meeting of his National Consultative Council for Building and Civil Engineering on 19th March about the effects of British Standard Time 234W upon the construction industry with special reference to Scotland.
§ Mr. Mellish
At its meeting on 15th March my National Consultative Council had before it a memorandum about British Standard Time prepared by the National Federation Building Trades Employers, and particular attention was drawn to the problems which had arisen in Scotland during the winter. In the light of the discussion I renewed my undertaking to convey the views of the construction industry to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department.
