HC Deb 06 December 1906 vol 166 cc1168-9
MR. W. T. WILSON (Lancashire, Westhoughton)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the joiners employed in the Royal dockyards participated in the increase of wages recently granted to the workmen; whether the increased rate is paid to the joiners employed in all the yards; and, if not, will he state in which yards the increased rate is paid.


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. The remainder of the Question, therefore, does not arise.


asked if the joiners did not, in common with other trades in the dockyard, present a petition to the Admiralty setting forth a schedule of wages paid in other places where similar work is done, and were the Admiralty now paying in accordance with that schedule?


Yes, I believe the petitions did contain a schedule.
