HC Deb 05 November 1912 vol 43 cc1030-1
61. Mr. FELL

asked what is the rate of weekly wages paid to the women typewriters at the head office in Westminster of the National Insurance Commissioners?


The remuneration for the work in question is at the usual service rates, namely, typists, 20s., rising by an increment of 2s. to 26s. a week; shorthand typists, 26s., rising by an increment of 2s.to 31s. a week; superintendents, 35s. a week. The typists employed temporarily by the Commissioners are paid from 20s. to 25s. per week.


Do any of these ladies receive as little as 15s. a week1?


On the information given to me, certainly not. I hope not, at all events.
