Vol. 62 No. 18

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Working Hours and Conditions.

asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if he will state when he intends to introduce proposals for legislation to regulate the hours of work and conditions of employment of persons engaged in mining, transport and commercial undertakings.

A Bill on the subject of hours of work and conditions of employment in shops is in course of preparation, but I am not yet in a position to indicate when it will be introduced. While legislation dealing with mining and transport is in contemplation, it will be some considerable time before proposals can be submitted to the Dáil.
