HC Deb 30 March 1914 vol 60 c813

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will ascertain at which of the principal London termini of the various railway companies in London, porters or out-porters in attendance upon passengers either receive no wages or pay to be so employed; if porters or out-porters so employed are insurable under the National Insurance Act; and whether the railway companies concerned pay the employer's contribution?


I am informed that the Board of Trade have no means of obtaining the particulars asked for in the first part of the question. If the hon. Member has a specific case in mind, perhaps he will be good enough to give me particulars of it.
