HC Deb 13 May 1915 vol 71 c1796

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in reply to his circular, several Irish railway companies have agreed to meet the men's representatives to discuss the question of War bonus given on the terms and conditions as it is given in England and Scotland; and what steps he proposes to take in the matter?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Runciman)

If this question refers to companies not covered by my answer of yesterday I may state that such, companies are, I understand, already granting a War bonus to their employés, and are willing to discuss with them the question of its sufficiency.
