HC Deb 25 April 1904 vol 133 c1041
CAPTAIN NORTON (Newington, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether it has been brought to his notice that unskilled labourers receiving less than the local minimum rate of wages are now employed upon the electrical wiring of submarines for His Majesty's Navy at Barrow-in-Furness; and if so, whether he will cause immediate inquiry to be made into this matter.


The attention of the Admiralty has been called to the matter referred to in the hon. Member's Question, and inquiry is now being made in regard to it.
