HC Deb 22 September 1915 vol 74 c444
26. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the Minister of Munitions whether he is aware that Messrs. Chapman, bayonet makers, of Sheffield, are only paying their employés time and a quarter for all overtime; if he is aware that the Sheffield standard rate is time and a quarter for the first two hours, time and a half after, and time and three-quarters for Sunday work; and if he intends taking any action in the matter?


Inquiries are being made into this matter, and my hon. Friend shall be informed of the result.
