The provisions in the Factories Act regulating the hours of young persons apply to Crown Establishments. It is primarily the responsibility of the Minister controlling the particular establishment to see that these provisions are observed. I am in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Supply with regard to certain of his establishments. If my hon. Friend has any particular case in mind, I should be glad to have particulars.
