HC Deb 01 March 1917 vol 90 c2148
87. Mr. RAFFAN

asked the Minister of Munitions if he is now in a position to state whether it is proposed to extend the trade-card scheme to other trades unions who possess members engaged in munition work, in addition to the twenty-four trades unions already covered by the scheme; and, if not, whether it is proposed to amend the scheme or substitute for it some other arrangement which will work equitably amongst all members of trades unions who are engaged in munition work?

Major Sir WORTHINGTON EVANS (Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions)

This question is being considered by the Government, and a statement on the subject will be made as soon as possible.


Can the hon. Gentleman give us any idea of how long it will be before the Ministry is able to come to a decision?


I hope it will not be very long.


Next week?
