Mr. T. F. RICHARDS
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the firm of Messrs. Ransomes and Rapier, Ipswich, are contractors to the Admiralty; if so, whether he is aware that the rivetters and platers in their employ are paid 22s. per week, the district rate being 32s. per week; and whether be will take action to have the Fair Wage Clause complied with?
§ The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. R. McKenna)
I am in correspondence with this firm upon the subject, and would be glad if the hon. Gentleman would kindly renew his question.
