§ 95. Mr. BYRNE
asked the President of the Board of Trade, if he is aware of the discontent on the Irish railways caused by the insufficient wages paid to the employés; and if he will say whether the Government have devised or are considering any scheme by way of grant, or otherwise, that would enable the railway companies to pay a reasonable war bonus to their employés?
§ Mr. PRETYMAN
The question of any increase in the war bonus to the men employed on the Irish railways is a matter for the railway companies, and not for the Board of Trade.
