– in the House of Commons on 30th April 1935.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Labour whether he can make any further statement of progress regarding his conversations with industrial representatives with regard to a shorter working week or any proposals for work distribution?
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given yesterday to a similar question asked by the hon. Member for Leigh (Mr. Tinker).
Could my right hon. Friend consider making from time to time some interim statement as to the results of these negotiations?
I will consider that suggestion, but the important thing is the eventual result, and I think that any interim statement about consultations of this kind are not likely to be helpful.
In the course of his conversations, has the right hon. Gentleman discussed the question of a reduction of working hours without reduction of pay?
That is one of the principal topics round which these conversations centre.
