HC Deb 31 March 1909 vol 3 cc339-40

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, having regard to the new Fair Wages Resolution, he will obtain from the tirades union and employers in the pottery trades a schedule of wages for the different classes of workpeople accepted as fair; and will he insert in the forms of tender to be signed by the pottery manufacturers obtaining contracts with his Department a statement of the wages they will have to pay?


The suggestion of the hon. Member goes beyond the terms of the Resolution of the 10th instant and involves the fixing of schedules of wages by the War Office. This is not contemplated.
