HC Deb 29 October 1908 vol 195 cc466-7
MR. SUMMERBELL (Sunderland)

To ask the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware that, when a labourer at Bushey Park is performing acting gatekeeper's duties, twenty-five hours per week are added to the time he is employed in his usual occupation; and, if so, whether he can see his way to allow a labourer whilst performing these duties a reasonable amount of extra remuneration.

(Answered by Mr. Harcourt.) At present a labourer performing acting gatekeeper's duties receives 4s. 8d. per week extra remuneration for twenty-five hours additional on-duty. I am prepared to recommend that in future a labourer shall receive 7s. per week extra remuneration for this duty.
