§ MR. ARTHUR ARNOLD (for Mr. BROADHURST)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether he has received a statement from the London Society of Compositors respecting the Stationery Office Schedules of Prices for Parliamentary Printing Contracts, alleging 617 their complaint that as bases of contracts they are not in accordance with the recognized scale of prices paid by nearly all the large printing firms in London, and therefore calculated greatly to reduce the wages of the men employed in the trade; and, whether he will lay such document upon the Table of the House, with the reply, if any, given to the same?
§ LORD FREDERICK CAVENDISH
Yes, Sir; I have received a Memorial of the character described in the Question. If my hon. Friend likes to move for it, and the answer of the Treasury, I shall be happy to lay them on the Table of the House.
