Richard Burpee Hanson (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

I move
that Bill 21 be amended by inserting the following section immediately after clause 13 as clause 14:
Nothing in this act contained shall be construed as relieving any employer from any obligation under any provincial statute establishing shorter hours of work than those established under this act.
The intention is to take care of those cases where there is provincial legislation so that the hours of labour shall in no case be greater than those now in the provincial statutes when they provide for shorter hours than does this statute.

Topic:   EIGHT HOUR DAY
Subtopic:   BILL TO LIMIT HOURS OF WORK IN INDUSTRIAL UNDERTAKINGS
