HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 cc1582-3
MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)

To ask the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that the Fair Wages Clause of the House of Commons is not being carried out by the painting contractor for the work now being done at the Royal Barracks, Dublin; whether he is aware that the glazing and putting in of panes of glass in the various barracks is also being executed under the standard rate of pay; and will he take steps to see that the Fair Wages Clause is carried out by the contractors on these works.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) The matter has been inquired into, and it appears that the current rate of the district has been and is paid by the contractors, and that the conditions of the contract relating to wages are being properly observed.
