HC Deb 20 December 1906 vol 167 c1699
*MR. W. T. WILSON (Lancashire,Westhoughton)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware that a notice has been posted at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, informing the workmen employed there that they will not be paid wages for Christmas Day; whether, seeing that for many years past wages have been paid for this holiday, he will say whether the above-mentioned notice was posted with his sanction; and whether he will take steps to continue the custom that has prevailed for so many years.


This regulation applies to casual labour, but if wrongly applied at Greenwich will be withdrawn.
