§ Mr. Churchill
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will seek power to suspend, for the duration of the three-day working week, clauses in wage contracts which provide for all week-end working to be at overtime rates, in cases where firms guarantee their employees a 40-hour working week.
§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
I have been asked to reply.
This problem is best dealt with by management and unions in the light of their own industrial situation.
