§ 7. Sir Reginald Blair
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that a firm carrying out camp contracts is advertising in the Press offering to men the attaction of an 80-hour week with full overtime rate, thereby inducing them to leave other Government contractors abiding by the present maximum of 60 hours, and, as it is undesirable for men in the building trade to be working an 80-hour week in view of the Government's decision that 60 hours shall be the maximum, what steps will be taken to prevent this?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Yes Sir. Inquiry is being made by the contracting department concerned into the circumstances of the case referred to by the hon. Member.
