HC Deb 26 February 1914 vol 58 c1955

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether an inquiry has been held as to the rates of wages paid by the New Explosives Company at Stowmarket; and if he can state whether the Fair-Wages Clause is being observed by the said company?


An investigation into the rates of wages and conditions of labour at Stowmarket has been made. During the course of the investigation a schedule of wages has been issued, which has taken effect from 1st January, and this schedule, it is considered, satisfies the conditions of the Fair-Wages Clause?
