§ 10. Mr. GEORGE ROBERTS
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that the firm of J. W. Brooke and Company, Lowestoft, contractors to the Admiralty for motor pinnaces, are paying boat builders in their employ 7d. per hour and two or three leading men 7½d. per hour, whereas the district rate for such work is 8d. per hour; and whether he will have inquiry made with a view to securing observance of the Fair-Wages Clause?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I am having inquiry made into the matter.
