§ 61. Colonel Lord HENRY CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Minister of Munitions when he will take steps to redeem his promise, in July last, that women in controlled firms should have a fair wage; and whether he will exercise the powers conferred on him by the Munitions (Amendment) Act to secure that all women workers in munition factories shall have a minimum wage of 5d. an hour, seeing that the cost of living has risen 40 per cent, since the outbreak of the War?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Attercliffe.
