HC Deb 20 December 1915 vol 77 cc39-40
101. Mr. T. WILSON

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he is aware that Messrs. Wem, of Yarmouth, who are making cordite trays for the War Office, are paying the men employed on war work from ¾d. to 2½d. per hour less than the proper rate of pay; whether the Fair-Wages Clause is inserted in the contract this firm holds; and, if so, will he take steps to compel the firm to comply with its provisions?


I have no information on the subject, but am causing inquiry to be made, and will communicate the result to my hon. Friend.
