§ MR. ARTHUR LEE (Hampshire, Fareham)
To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty if he can state why no mention is made in the recently published list of concessions to dockyard employees of the petition of the joiners; and whether their case is being further considered.
(Answered by Mr. Edmund Robertson.) The joiners, having received an increase of 1s. 6d. a week in 1904 and a further increase of 1s. a week in 1905, did not participate in the increases recently granted to other workmen.
