asked the Minister of Labour whether his Department has prepared, and has brought to the notice of employers, any leaflets or printed information showing in detail how different systems of part-time work are being operated in many factories; and how the principal difficulties which strike anyone who has had no experience of the system are in practice being successfully overcome?

Articles on this subject, dealing in particular with methods of overcoming practical difficulties, have been printed in the "Engineering Bulletin," a monthly magazine published by my Department and circulated to employers in the engineering and allied industries. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy. A special pamphlet is in preparation, which will be widely distributed.
