§ 69. Mr. ANDERSON
asked the Minister of Munitions whether the Sterling Telephone Company, Dagenham, are making fuses and field telephones for the Government; whether they are paying a rate of 2½d. per hour, and 1s. 6d. war bonus, to adult women engaged on this work; whether the firm recently worked women 1449 on Government work (field telephones) for a thirty hours' consecutive shift; how often this occurred; and what action, if any, it is proposed to take?
§ Dr. ADDISON
It is not desirable in the public interest to state what munitions are manufactured by particular establishments. Inquiry is being made into the various matters referred to in the question, and my right hon. Friend is in communication with the Home Office on the subjects within their purview.
