HC Deb 10 August 1916 vol 85 cc1207-8
17. Mr. HOHLER

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware that on 22nd July, 1915, in reply to a question, he stated that the grant of a war bonus to the timekeepers employed in His Majesty's dockyards was under consideration; and is he now in a position to state whether any, and what, decision has been come to?


It is regretted that a decision has not yet been arrived at.


Will a decision ever be come to?


Yes, I hope so. I think my hon. Friend knows that the whole question of the clerical staff is a very difficult one, and raises issues very much wider than those raised in this particular case.
