HC Deb 29 May 1907 vol 174 c1627

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether the Arsenal labourers who have been put on short time, owing to the suspension of work on Saturdays, are being paid less than the minimum weekly wage of 23s. laid down in the Ordnance Factory rules; and, if so, will it be possible, in consideration of the hardships thereby entailed, to grant them the recognised minimum.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the Answer I gave to a similar Question put by the hon. Member for Woolwich on the 16th instant.†
