HC Deb 24 April 1996 vol 276 c184W
Ms Quin

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what recent representations he has received regarding the maximum length of the working week. [25081]

Mr. John M. Taylor

During the past 12 months, 26 letters have been received by the Department of Trade and Industry and the former Employment Department about the length of the working week. They expressed views both in support of the imposition of restrictions on the number of hours which can be worked in a week, and opposing such restrictions.
