A consideration of Sunday work.
Today hundreds of thousands of men in Britain have been engaged on Sunday work.
The Rev. William Cattanach, of St. Ninian's Parish Church, Greenock, believes this to be a serious matter threatening family life and the fabric of society itself, as well as the life of the churches.
He considers the problem with the help of Miss F. McIndoe, a social worker, David Currie, former chairman of the Scottish T.U.C., and K. B. Robinson, a shipyard director.
