HC Deb 21 March 1906 vol 154 c361
MR. WALTERS (Sheffield, Brightside)

To ask the Secretary to the Anmiralty whether he will take steps to insure the distribution of orders for armour plate over a longer period of the year, so as to avoid the working of overtime and so as to afford more regular and continuous employment to the workmen engaged in this trade.

(Answered by Mr. Edmund Robertson.) Every endeavour is and will be made to regulate the orders to the armour-plate manufacturers in such a way as to render overtime unnecessary.
