HC Deb 30 May 1912 vol 38 c1546

asked whether the minimum wage fixed by Lord St. Aldwyn, acting as chairman of the Welsh District Board under the Coal Mines (Minimum Wage) Act, is 3s. per day plus any percentage which may be for the time being in force?


It is not practicable to state the effect of an interim decision given in the course of proceedings held under the chairmanship of an independent arbitrator, which may involve many subsidiary questions and may be affected by rules and other circumstances which have not yet been the subject of discussion between the parties or considered either by the parties or the chairman.
