asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that the Workers' Union, on the 19th June last, reported to the Chief Industrial Commissioner a difference with regard to the wages of foremen, labourers, and women workers employed at the Army Ordnance Depot, Forthside, Stirling, and that the War Office have refused to submit the matter to arbitration; and will he state the reason for this violation of the Munitions of War Act on the part of the Department?


The War Office reply to the Chief Industrial Commissioner asked for further information. This has only just been received, and the whole question is being investigated.
