HC Deb 07 December 1911 vol 32 cc1575-6

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in connection with the alleged breach of the Fair-Wage Clause by Messrs. A. and J. Inglis, Point House, in the pay of their labourers, he is aware that the pay for labourers employed at Messrs. Denny's, Dumbarton, is 21s. 10d. a week; at Messrs. Brown's, Clydebank, from 19s. 1½d. to 20s. 3d.; at Messrs. Beardmore's, Dalmuir, 21s. 9d.; at Yarrows, Scotstoun, 20s. 3d.; at the London and Glasgow Yard, Govan, 19s. 1½d.; at the Fairfield Yard, Govan, 19s. to 20s. 3d.; and at Messrs. Scott's, Greenock, 20s. 3d.; and that Messrs. Inglis only pay labourers 16s. 10d. for a week of fifty-four hours; and whether he will have further inquiry made into this matter, and prevent any infraction of the Clause in question?


In view of the evidence which my hon. Friend now produces, I will have further inquiry made.
