All contracts let for construction projects pursuant to this title shall be subject to the conditions that no convict labor shall be directly employed on any such project, and that (except in executive, administrative, and supervisory positions), so far as practicable, no individual directly employed on any such project shall be permitted to work more than thirty hours in any one week, and that in the employment of labor in connection with any such project, preference shall be given, where they are qualified, to ex-service men with dependents.

NOTE.-In connection with the foregoing $10,000,000 appropriation for Hoover Dam work, the department and the bureau are of opinion that it would be impracticable to operate under the limitations of section 307. Under date of September 16, 1932, the Administrative Assistant to the Secretary and Budget Officer advised the bureau that the department was advised informally by the General Accounting Office that the question of practicability was one for administrative determination and should be shown by certificate of the Secretary of the Interior. The only showing which the Comptroller General would require with a copy of the contract would be a copy of such certificate.
