HC Deb 16 August 1916 vol 85 c1851
43. Mr. DUNCAN

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that at the Royal Aircraft Factory, Farnborough, married men are being discharged while numbers of single unskilled men are being retained; and whether, in view of the dissatisfaction being caused by this action, he will investigate the matter with a view to securing more equal treatment?


No, Sir. I am informed that single unskilled men are only being retained in a few cases, and that these will be dispensed with as soon as suitable substitutes can be obtained.
