asked the Minister of Labour if, and when, it is intended to give effect to the recommendations made on 10th June, 1930, by the Inter- national Labour Conference of the League of Nations on the hours of work in commerce and offices?

This along with the other decisions of the fourteenth Session of the International Labour Conference, are under consideration at the present time.

Can this matter be considered in the Bill which was presented yesterday by the Minister of Labour, and the Clauses extended to cover commerce and offices?

I do not think so, but I have said to the hon. Gentleman that the Government proposals will be laid before the House by means of a White Paper.
