§ MR. KEIR HARDIE (Merthyr Tydvil)
Has it come to the knowledge of the Government that Messrs. Wilson and Co., of Belfast, who are engaged on a War Office contract, have reduced the wages of their men from 32s. to 22s.; that those who refused the lower sum have been dismissed; that their places have been filled with unskilled labour, and is not this a violation of the conditions under which the contract was given out?
* MR. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS
I have only just received notice of this question, but I will make further inquiry into the new allegations, which, I believe, are made under a misapprehension.
