HC Deb 05 August 1912 vol 41 c2640

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether the firm of Millar and Richards, typefounders, Edinburgh, has any Government contract; if so, whether the employés of this firm are out on strike against the low rates of wages; whether the wages paid by this firm do not correspond to the wages paid by printing firms in Edinburgh who make their own type, and that in addition the firm employs about forty girls at an average wage of 5s. per week; and whether he will make inquiry into the matter with a view to securing conformity with the Fair-Wages Clause?


So far as I am aware, the firm mentioned by the hon. Member are not Government contractors.
