§ 13. Mr. CLANCY
asked the Chief Secretary whether the employés of the Board of Works in Kingstown, county of Dublin, the Ministry of Munitions in Dublin, the national school teachers in Ireland, the postal officials in Ireland, and the employés of the War Office in Ireland work under the same conditions as the corresponding classes of employés in England; and, if so, whether they will, respectively, be granted rates of remuneration equal to those paid to their brethren in England, in accordance with the official statement that, when the conditions were uniform, the remuneration would be uniform?
§ Mr. DUKE
No, Sir; I am not prepared to admit that the conditions are uniform in the various cases mentioned. I must point out to my hon. and learned Friend that I have no responsibility for the wages paid by the War Office, the Ministry of Munitions, the Post Office and the Board of Works, and any question regarding these cases should be addressed to the Ministers responsible for those Departments respectively.
