HC Deb 06 April 1909 vol 3 c924

asked the Postmaster-General whether, as a further step towards the abolition of sweating, he will arrange to have all uniforms worn by Post Office servants made by labour employed directly by the Government?


I do not propose to do as suggested. The hon. Member is aware, however, that the fair wages clause is rigidly enforced; and I have lately introduced a minimum wage for the female workers under the Post Office clothing contracts.
