§ 20. Mr. HUDSON
asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he is aware that the Cork, Bandon, and South Coast Railway Company are deducting 3d. per week from the wages of the men who are in receipt of 2s. 4d. and 2s. 6d. per day; and whether the National Insurance Commissioners have given authority for uniform supplied, overtime, and payment for Sunday duty to be calculated in the aggregate as daily 2661 earnings in order to bring the daily wage up to more than 2s. 6d. per day for the purposes of the National Insurance Act?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The Irish Commissioners are not aware of the amounts being deducted by the Cork, Bandon, and South Coast Railway Company from, the wages of employés in receipt of 2s. 4d. and 2s. 6d. per day. On a statement furnished by the secretary of the company, making no reference to uniform or overtime, the Irish Commissioners advised them the rates were, for worker 2d. and for employer 3½d. If the full facts of the case are submitted to the Commissioners on the forms available for the purpose the question will be determined in accordance with the regulations made under Section 66 of the Act.
