24. Mr. TYSON WILSON
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture if he has replied to the application of the gardeners and labourers employed at Kew Gardens for an increase of wage and a revision of the hours of labour; and, if so, will he state the nature of his reply?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I received a deputation on this subject recently, and I am now bringing the representations made to me to the notice of the Treasury.
Mr. TYSON WILSON
Arising out of that reply may I ask whether, in view of the miserably low wages paid to the employés at Kew Gardens he will bring their wages at the least up to those paid to the employés at the other Royal parks?
