Dobson and Hawkes has a rule that its staff are not allowed to be married to each other and therefore maintenance man Norman Burton and window dresser Judy Best have to keep their marriage a secret. Further pressure is put on Judy when her sister Susan has to go for a job interview and there is no one to look after her baby son for the afternoon. Kindly Mrs Edgeley suggests that the baby is hidden in the stockroom and even Miss Sinclair joins in on the deception when she finds she is taken with the infant. Matters are complicated however when Leonard Swindley takes over as welfare officer for the branch and discovers the baby while conducting a stock check. Judy is forced to confess that the baby is her responsibility but Swindley misunderstands and takes it to be that the baby is hers. Further confusion arises when he finds out that Judy and Norman have a relationship and he enjoins Norman to do the right thing as a baby is involved. Norman in turn thinks that Judy is pregnant and faints when he is introduced in a matter of hours to "his" infant son. Matters are not helped by a livid Wally Hunt who finds a baby, a collapsed maintenance man and chaos in his stockroom and puts the blame squarely on his new welfare officer...
