Mr. T. F. RICHARDS
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that at the Coventry Ordnance Works the Fair Wage Clause is not being observed in the polishing department, the rate of wages paid being 7d. per hour, whereas the district rate is 8d. per hour; and whether he will take steps to have the clause complied with?
§ Mr. McKENNA
This matter has already been brought to the notice of the Admiralty, who are in communication with the Coventry Ordnance Works on the subject.
