Operators involved in Civic, Professional and Other Interest Group Services will have one or a combination of the following activities as the primary activity of their operations: business and professional association services; labour association services; and/or other interest group services (not elsewhere classified).

The Chief Inspector of Factories (Mr H. M. Murphy) explained to-day that until section 29 of the Amending Factories Act becomes law wages boards were free to define casual labor. Under the Act casual labor might only be fixed for half the total hours of an ordinary working week. No one working more than 24 hours per week in a week of 48 hours might now be accepted as casual. The question had arisen as to whether anybody employed all the year round, by working less than the named hours, might be called casuals. That question had been referred to the Crown Solicitor, who had advised that anyone so working, whether all the year round or otherwise, was “casual labor.” '
