67. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware that all sections of workmen engaged in the building trades in the London area will receive 1d. an hour advance on the payday for the week ending 22nd July; and whether he is making arrangements for all workmen, including labourers, engaged in the building trades employed under his control to receive the same advance at the same time?


Yes, Sir; and in accordance with the Fair-Wages Resolution the agreed advance will become payable automatically to all workmen, including labourers, employed under contracts for my Department.
