asked the Minister of Labour what he is fixing at the present time as a fair working week in hours for engineers' technical staff, draughtsmen, clerical staff and mechanics, respectively?

I presume my hon. Friend has in mind the statement I issued in the early part of last year. If so, I would point out that the hours mentioned therein, namely 52 hours for operatives and 46 for office staff, were intended only as a general guide in dealing with withdrawals and deferments and the position in that connection remains unchanged.
